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.
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012
Light gold. Potent aromas of poached pear, honey and lees, with a suave undercurrent of anise and iodine; smells like a really good white Burgundy. Chewy, tightly focused orchard fruit flavors are braced by a tangy lemon zest quality and become spicier with air. Finishes with excellent clarity, focus and lingering smokiness.
