Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Talley is Excellent. It opens with a blueberry bouquet with a hint of cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a delicious cherry and mild red plum blend with hints of strawberry, elderberry, and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and its mild fine tannins drift away nicely. This yummy Pinot is food friendly and would pair nicely with salmon steaks. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounding Rosemary Talley's home, Rosemary's Vineyard is the coolest site at Talley Vineyards and produces exceptional pinot noir with bright flavors, firm structure and refreshing energy. Light garnet in hue, the 2014 vintage of Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir is true to character and expresses aromas of black cherry and plum. A sweet attack leads to mid-palate richness that finishes with a subtle touch of spice and refreshing minerality. Enjoy with beef carpaccio or roasted quail.
