Talley Vineyards Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Wine AdvocateAt the same level as the Rincon Vineyard in 2013, the beautiful 2013 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard saw a similar elevage and saw 18 months in 28% new French oak. A bigger, richer effort, it offers terrific black raspberry, raspberry, spice, rose petal and hints of minerality on the nose. Lacking a touch of the precision and focus of the Rincon effort, it makes up for it with medium to full-bodied richness, a rounded, supple, sexy texture and beautiful length. While I don't think it hits the heights of the '12, readers shouldn't miss either of these vintages and it will be great to try these two when they have some maturity.
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.
