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 finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Villages or Cru level wines.
