100% Pinot Noir

The Talley 2016 Estate Pinot Noir is the signature red wine of Talley Vineyards and has been bottled since the inaugural 1986 vintage. It represents a pure expression of the Arroyo Grande Valley appellation, and was the first Pinot Noir produced in Coastal San Luis Obispo County to demonstrate the potential of the area as a world-class Pinot Noir winegrowing region. Crimson purple in color, this Pinot Noir shows aromas of raspberry pie, cherry cola, and rhubarb with soft sandalwood undertones. The palate offers notes of juicy raspberry, plum, cranberry, and a hint of green tea.
