A nice Pinot Noir, with ripe, flashy red berry, cola and spice flavors. Itandrsquo;s a bit rustic around the edges, but it does show a certain amount of elegance.
Tight and savory, with firm dried berry, mineral, loamy earth and cedar notes. Drink now.
Three generations of the Talley family have cultivated their wines in the cool, temperate Arroyo Valley. This Pinot Noir is a perfect example of their dedicated efforts. Sweet fruits and floral notes greet the nose and follow through on the palate. The wine is light, yet bursting with berries and sweet spices. Finishes clean and tight. Pair with pork and lamb dishes.
Deep, bright red. Suave, perfumed aromas of raspberry, cinnamon and fresh flowers. Sappy and intense on the palate, offering sweet red fruit and rose pastille flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes bright and precise, with the floral note echoing with real authority.
