    A lot of lively fruit on the nose with this Pinot Noir from Bishop’s Peak. Cranberry sauce, red cherry pie, and strawberry jam. Hint of fresh bay leaves and rosewater round out the bouquet. Fresh, ripe red fruit on the palate; notably cranberries, strawberries, and red cherries (cherry pit too). A juicy, lively wine that is great deal for under $20.

    One of my favorite Central Coast producers is Talley Vineyards, and the exceptional quality of the varietals that they produce under their primary label can easily be found also with their second label, Bishop’s Peak. And a perfect example to that assertion can be found in this well-structured, nicely drinking, way-underpriced Pinot, with the grapes coming from vineyards in San Luis Obispo. Medium-deep ruby in color, the nose offers up classic rose petal to strawberry to clove-like fruit aromas which is underscored by slate-like minerality and soft cedary tones. Balanced, lush, almost silky on entry in the mouth, this Gem broadens out over the mid-range and finishes with round, refined tannins in its complex presentation and finish. Rusty asked me how much this Gem cost and then demanded that I bring home cases of this delightful find. A WONDERFUL VALUE!!! ***** 13.7% ABV *****
    Drink from 2017 to 2025

    From the winemakers at Talley, the Bishop Peak label is a rather remarkable find. Bright layers of red cherry and raspberry are complemented by notes spice and a touch of oak. There is a surprisingly subtle hint of silky tannins and just a little minerality in the bottle. Coming in at under 14% ABV, the Bishop's Peak eschews power for elegance and finesse. At under $20 a bottle this is a perfect wine to grab a case of.

    I have always loved the wines from Talley Vineyards, and was very pleased to find that they make another label called Bishop's Peak, which has the same elegant, well-balanced red berry fruit and smooth texture as the Talley wines, but at a better price point. Don't hesitate to give this bottle a try, it may become a new house Pinot! Also a fabulous choice for holiday parties and larger gatherings.

    Talley Vineyards from the Central Coast harvested fruit from vineyards throughout San Luis Obispo Country and created this fantastic Pinot Noir for their Bishop's Peak label. Although 2014 was a drought year, the fruit quality really shines. This wine is elegant, showcases red fruits beautifully and has a bit of oak and spice to balance it out. It can be enjoyed on its own or with food and has a price that will allow you drink often!
