Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounding Rosemary Talley's home, Rosemary's Vineyard is the coolest site at Talley Vineyards and produces exceptional pinot noir with bright flavors, firm structure and refreshing energy. Rich aromas of boysenberry, toasty oak and baking spice balanced by subtle minerality lead things off for the 2013 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir. Deep garnet in color, the mid-palate is firm with notes of black cherry and cranberry followed by layers of earth and soil, leading to ultra fine tannins. Elegant, refined and refreshing, pair this exceptional pinot noir with grilled salmon or seared duck breast.

Wine EnthusiastThis study of restraint shows a bit of beet juice and cherry blossom at first on the nose. With patience, red currant and more purple fruits settle in alongside brown spice. The fruit flavors range delicately from cranberry to pomegranate to black raspberry, with lots of interesting tension and black peppercorn spice on the palate.

Wine SpectatorVery extracted, dry and tannic, giving this wine a bitter streak and a greenish aftertaste that ends with more tannins and grit than fruit and charm. Drink now through 2020. 517 cases made.
