Translucent red. High-pitched red berry, cherry and rose pastille scents are lifted by blood orange and mineral nuances. Silky, weightless and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become deeper and sweeter with air. Shows impressive depth of flavor but comes off lithe, even delicate. Clings with serious tenacity on the gently tannic finish, which strongly echoes the red fruit and floral notes. Talley's side project, which is not exactly a second label as the wines may include fruit that is sourced from outside Arroyo Grande, is a consistently excellent source for elegant wines that deliver very serious bang for the buck. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, in particular, give a glimpse of this iconic Central Coast winery's style for a bargain-bin price, and they age nicely as well. (JR)
Moving to the reds, the 2014 Bishop's Peak Pinot Noir is a rock solid effort that has lots of classic Pinot Noir character in its raspberry, spice, forest floor and dried herbs bouquet. Medium-bodied, charming and layered, it's an impressive Pinot Noir that's made in decent quantities. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years. (JD)
One of the Talley family’s more affordable bottlings, this is a great choice for weeknight sipping or bringing to neighborhood parties. Aromas of dried cherries meet with forest floor, wet thyme and chipped slate on the nose, while the palate offers light cran-raspberry, dried herbs and a menthol finish on a decently acidic structure.
