Winemaker Notes

The 2016 vintage of Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir is brilliant ruby in hue. Plum and strawberry aromas on the nose are complemented by black tea and wet earth undertones. The palate is soft, characterized by fine tannins and notes of black cherry, rich plum, and wet cement.

Try pairing this Pinot Noir with wild mushroom risotto or grilled salmon.

Another gem is the 2016 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard, which is up with the crème de la crème from California. This deeply colored effort gives up tons of cassis and ripe cherry fruits, subtle background oak and spice, medium body, and a layered, multi-dimensional texture. With sensational purity of fruit and top-notch balance, it will keep for 10-15 years.

COMMENTARY: Talley Vineyards continues to produce some of the finest Pinot Noirs from the Central Coast. The 2016 Rosemary's Vineyard is one of the winery's best wines to date. TASTING NOTES: This wine is energetic and vibrant. Its aromas and flavors of bright red fruits should pair it perfectly with a lightly garlic-infused roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: August 20, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Elderberries, red and black licorice and brambleberry pie. Very nicely done on the palate with a super balance between acidity tension, soft, dark fruit and firm tannins. Drink now.

Talley Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery that specializes in estate grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir ideally suited for the climate and soils of the Arroyo Grande and Edna Valleys. The Talley’s farming history in the area dates to 1948 when Oliver Talley began growing vegetables in the Arroyo Grande Valley. Guided by this legacy and a commitment to long term sustainability, Talley Vineyards focuses on attention to detail in all aspects of farming and winemaking operations. The goal is to produce distinctive wines of consistently high quality that best express the unique character of each of the Talley family’s six vineyard sites in the two valleys.

Talley Vineyards is located in the Arroyo Grande Valley, seven miles east of the Pacific Ocean in San Luis Obispo County on California's South Central Coast. We are approximately halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and less than 10 minutes from Highway 101 in Arroyo Grande.

One of the coolest growing areas in California, the Arroyo Grande Valley runs from the southwest to the northeast, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and is part of the Central Coast AVA. Situated so that cold Pacific Ocean air and fog is allowed to filter into the valley, Arroyo Grande also has an incredibly long growing season. Bud break occurs in February in most years with flowering in May and harvest in late September; the area is classified as cool Mediterranean.

These weather factors combined with the soil types—continental and marine rocks, greywacke, limestone, shale and volcanic—create wines with great concentration and fresh acidity. The cooler end of the valley is perfect for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and is a good producer of sparkling wines. The warmer, more inland part of the valley is home to some of California’s oldest Zinfandel vines.
