Talley Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir 2014
VinousBrilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence.
Wine EnthusiastTangy raspberry, hibiscus and sweet pomegranate notes meet a brick-like minerality on the nose of this appellation blend. It's light and easy on the palate, its fruit notes lifted by hints of cola and chaparral spice.
