Tasting Notes

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Chardonnays from this vienyard are virtually guaranteed to be among the richest in California, and Talley's 2008 certainly doesn't disappoint. It's a massively structured, flamboyant wine, tremendous in tropical fruit, pear, peach and apple flavors that taste like they've been baked into a pie, along with the sweet, smoky crust. A tremendous wine that must be paired with equally sized food. Lobster and scallops come to mind, served in rich cream and butter sauces." (04/11) 94+ points Robert Parker: "The 2007 Chardonnay Rosemary’s Vineyard has a similar light gold color and a distinct smell of crushed rocks intermixed with white flowers as well as restrained nectarine and orange blossom. Much more expressive in the mouth than the tight aromatics suggest, this brilliant wine builds incrementally and authoritatively on the palate, with beautiful purity, fruit, and structure. Talley’s house style of richness, restraint, and power combined with elegance is beautifully displayed in this full-bodied example of Chardonnay. Drink it over the next 5-6 years." (08/10) The 2007 Rosemary’s Vineyard Chardonnay exhibits aromas of lemon zest and orange blossom, toasted nuts and a touch of oak. On the palate this wine is round with firm acidity, pronounced citrus flavors and a vibrant mineral structure that leads to a long and elegant finish. This Chardonnay is a perfect complement to rich seafood, like sautéed sea scallops or lobster.
