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.

($46) Bright, green-tinged yellow. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of lime zest, pear and anise, with suave floral and mineral qualities that gain strength with aeration. Rich and fleshy but dry, with a steely core of minerality supporting its deep citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Becomes spicier in the glass and finishes with excellent clarity, cut and juicy persistence. I've no doubt that this will be a slow ager.
