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.

($32) Bright gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruit aromas are complicated by floral honey and nougat. Lush and creamy, offering smoky pit fruit flavors and a sneaky note of lemon zest. Finishes with firm grip and a youthfully dry edge. This wine shut down with air and became more inscrutable; I'd hold off on opening a bottle for at least another year.
