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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
(20% new French oak): Bright red. Fresh red fruits, flowers and spicecake on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and precise, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of blood orange. Finishes long and sweet, with gentle tannins and lingering floral and spice notes. This pinot delivers very good value and makes a gently priced introduction to the Talley style.
