Arroyo Grande Valley
2010 Rosemary’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
This wine is no longer available.
This wine has fresh aromas of raspberry, rose petals, and mineral with hints of white pepper. On the palate there are delicate flavors of black fruit and minerals. The texture is silky with a lean, with long, graceful tannins. This wine pairs well with a pan seared duck breast.
The 2010 year began with average rainfall followed by a very warm spring which enhanced fruit set. The summer and fall months were the coolest on record leading to an exceptionally long growing season. A six day heat spell in mid-September finished the ripening. Yields in the Arroyo Grande Valley were average and the grapes had lower sugar levels and perfectly developed flavors.

Wonderful with my Christmas dinner. Talley is by far my family's favorite winery.
