About Talley Vineyards
Before the Talley family made wine, they grew peppers, avocados, zucchini and more. In fact, in the Arroyo Grande Valley, the Talley’s have more of a name for vegetable growing than winemaking. The balance, however, is swaying, if not shifting, as the family wine operation, started in 1982, has continued to pick up steam.

($42) Hazy yellow color. Exotically perfumed bouquet of orange, pear, toasty lees, smoked meat and baking spices. Juicy tangerine and orchard fruit flavors are refreshingly pure and energetic, with a deeper, smokier lees quality gaining power with air. Finishes brisk and focused, with a lingering note of orange peel. This is already showing impressive complexity.
