Why this wine made the cut…
Rare that a Pinot is at once not only serious and age worthy, but also elegant and delicious now.

Pinot Noir
100% Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

The wines of Talley reflect the terroir, showing a balance of both silky approachability and intensity that varies depending on vineyard site—quality is the tie that binds them.
