94 points                                                      
One of the Central Coast's most prized Pinot Noirs - limited.

96 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
" The 2018 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard is more aromatic, with beautiful black raspberry fruits, notes of scorched earth, crushed flowers, and flinty minerality, medium to full body, beautiful balance, and an elegant, seamless style that carries stunning length on the finish."

94+ Points Robert Parker: "A barrel sample, the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby color and bombastic scents of raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and pomegranate preserves with accents of blood orange, potpourri, dried flowers, tree bark and amaro. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is bright, lively and intensely flavored with loads of floral nuance, a gentle frame and that classic, bright Talley freshness, finishing on a potpourri note."

previous vintage 95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "Limpid ruby-red. A highly complex bouquet evokes red berry and cherry preserves, along with building Asian spice, candied rose, vanilla and smoky mineral accents. Shows superb delineation on the palate, offering lush, spice-tinged red fruit liqueur, cherry cola and spicecake flavors that pick up a sexy floral pastille nuance with air. Finishes extremely long and lively, with fine-grained tannins lending shape and grip to lingering raspberry and exotic spice notes. I'd happily pour this alongside plenty of Grand Crus from Vosne-Romanée that go for three times the price, if not more. 35% new French oak."

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.
