Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet in hue, the 2015 vintage of Stone Corral Vineyard Pinot Noir offers intriguing aromas of blueberry, orange rind, cedar, and a hint of white pepper. The palate is juicy and dense, with notes of blackberry, crayon, and anise that linger long into the finish.

Enjoy this wine with grilled ribeye or smoked short ribs.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous
(aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 28% of them new) Vivid ruby-red. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, candied rose and Asian spices, enlivened by a vibrant mineral overtone. Silky and precise on the palate, offering intense, mineral-laced raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that put on weight and become sweeter with air. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes extremely long, featuring harmonious tannins and outstanding clarity.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Stone Corral is scented of fresh mulberries, black raspberries and pomegranate with touches of black soil, stewed tea and rose hip, plus a waft of mossy bark. Light to medium-bodied, the mouthfilling intensity of delicately played flavors is impressive, framed by pleasantly chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long.

Talley Vineyards, Edna Valley, Central Coast, California
Image of winery
Talley Vineyards is a small family-owned and operated winery located in the Arroyo Grande Valley on California's South Central Coast. This valley opens directly to the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the coolest and most temperate viticultural areas in California. The goal at Talley Vineyards is to produce estate bottled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of uncompromising quality. Talley Vineyards is committed to the primacy of terrior in its wines, and every step taken from vine to bottle is reflective of this approach.

Edna Valley

View all wine

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhone Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to take their time to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest-to-southwest orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
