Talley Vineyards Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard is a richer, layered effort that has a touch more oomph than the Rincon release. Passion fruits, raspberries, violets and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich and layered Pinot Noir that has fine tannin, beautiful purity and an already hard to resist style. Aged 16 months in 35% new French oak, drink it anytime through 2024.
Wine EnthusiastThe unfolding layers of aroma on the nose of this bottling-sesame, white pepper, rose and wild berry, to name a few-keep one coming back for more. The palate is textured and finishes on an uplifting note, showing raspberry, dried flowers, fresh herbs and a hint of menthol toward the end.
Wine SpectatorA trim style, with sour berry, dusty earth, cedar and tobacco leaf flavors, presenting a savory profile that ends on the dry side. Drink now through 2020. 594 cases made.
