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.

($26) Green-tinged gold. Smoky melon and peach aromas are complicated by lees and baking spices. Spicy and sharply focused, with juicy pit fruit flavors and slow-mounting sweetness. Finishes round and sappy, with a late jolt of zesty minerals.
