Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley Estate 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #160 (Aug 2005) Robert Parker 90 points. Complexity, elegance, concentration, and character jump significantly with the 2003 Pinot Noir Estate. A medium deep ruby color is accompanied by sweet cherry, raspberry, and currant fruit intermixed with damp earth and background wood notes. Medium-bodied and pure, with a floral component that emerges as the wine sits in the glass, this stylish, complex Pinot Noir could easily be confused with a high class Volnay. It should drink well for 5-6 years. Kudos to the Talley family for its impressive dedication to high quality wines.

Beautiful pale ruby in color. Scent of strawberry soaked in alcohol. Heat up front followed by a burst of berries (strawberry and raspberry) and some damp woody flavor. Nice bit of acidity on the end balances out this wine.

Shows fragrant wilted rose and dried berry scents. Medium-bodied, with spice, herb, dried cherry and hints of anise and mineral. Ends with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Light, bright red. Sharply focused red berry and spice aromas are impressively pure and fresh. Taut, finely etched redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are seamless and clean, with slow-mounting minerality contributing energy. Finishes with gentle sweetness and a jolt of dusty minerals. This will need a bit more time than the Edna Valley bottling.
