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.

Vivid ruby-red. Vibrant raspberry and cherry-cola aromas are complicated by Asian spice and candied floral nuances. Offers sweet red berry compote and bitter cherry flavors that are enlivened by white pepper and lavender. The long, silky finish features fine-grained tannins and a suave floral pastille kick. There's 30% new French oak here but I barely notice it.
