Wine Review: This garnet colored Pinot Noir from Talley is very good and on the elegant side of the spectrum. It opens with a cherry-cola bouquet with hints of cranberry, dried flowers and gentle raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, moderately acidic and soft. The flavor profile is a mild raspberry and strawberry rhubarb blend with notes of oak and hints of vanilla, white pepper and black cherry. The finish is dry and shorter than most Pinots we have covered. It subtlety faded away. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with shrimp and grits or a pork roast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Stone Corral Vineyard is a 28 acre site located in the Edna Valley. The 2014 vintage of Stone Corral Vineyard Pinot Noir exudes juicy black fruit aromas bolstered by an intriguing smoked meat characteristic. On the palate, hints of strawberry and sandalwood lead to stunning mid-palate concentration layered with supple tannin. Try pairing this Pinot Noir with grilled chicken and vegetable kabobs fresh off the grill.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
