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.

(made entirely from estate-grown fruit in the Oliver's vineyard; 20% new oak): Pale yellow. Musky, perfumed aromas of pear skin, anise, orange pith and white flowers. Supple and broad but surprisingly dry, offering chewy orchard and pit fruit flavors brightened by a bitter citrus pith nuance. Finishes quite long, with very good focus and grip, the orange and anise notes repeating.
