Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley Estate 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2010 Pinot Noir Estate wraps around the palate with expansive layers of expressive dark red fruit. Mint, flowers and anise develop in the glass, adding further depth. This is another deep, beautifully nuanced wine, especially for the money. The Estate is a blend of fruit from Rincon and Rosemary's. Winemaker Eric Johnson used some stems in the Rincon fruit, while the Rosemary's was fully destemmed. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (Aug 2012)

Vivid red. Heady, exotic bouquet evokes candied red fruits, potpourri and spicecake, with a mineral topnote. Fresh, penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show impressive clarity and put on weight with air. Fine-grained tannins give shape... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Talley's Estate Pinot Noir has a complex bouquet layered with aromas of raspberry, cola, anise, and nutmeg, with subtle hints of smoke and cedar. This full-bodied, elegant Pinot Noir has a plush mouthfeel rich with flavors of red fruit and a minerality characteristic of the Arroyo Grande Valley.
