91pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous
Made by the folks at famed Talley Vineyards, the Bishop's Peak Pinot Noir is worth a try. Rich, lush red fruit and berries, balancing earthy and floral notes, and soft tannins make it a must with food as well as on its own. Enjoy your first glasses with a salad of roasted beets with marcona almonds and orange slices. The combination is divine. Seared duck breast with poached cherries and a spiced duck glaze will deliver the wow factor in spades. A little simpler but equally delicious is sauteed salmon finished with a brown butter-caper sauce. And if you're doing takeout, make it char siu pork with a side of steamed baby bok choy with oyster sauce. Talley ho winelovers!

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:"Brilliant red. Pungent red berry and candied rose aromas are complemented by subtle earth and licorice accents. Appealingly sweet, focused raspberry and cherry flavors slowly deepen as the wine opens up. Shows very good energy and spicy lift on the gently tannic finish, which leaves a juicy red fruit note behind. Drink 2020-2026." Jan 2019

Winery: "Ruby in appearance, the 2016 vintage of Bishop’s Peak Pinot Noir offers aromas of cherry, black tea, and fresh strawberry. Enticing notes of pomegranate seed and crushed cranberry are complemented by soft violet undertones. With integrated tannins that lead to a beautiful finish, try pairing this Pinot Noir with spinach gnocchi or a fresh salmon salad.

The 2016 growing season was one of the very best in the 30 year history of Talley Vineyards. After four years of severe drought, El Niño conditions brought the most rainfall to the region since 2011. After a cool and windy spring, temperatures throughout the season were moderate, especially during the critical summer months when veraison and ripening occurred. The absence of severe heat for any extended period during the harvest season meant that the grapes were harvested at a moderate pace at optimal ripeness. Yields in the vineyard were consistent with five year averages and the resulting wines reflect the concentration, balance and elegance that is the hallmark of the confluence of a perfect growing season and a wine growing approach committed to capturing all the potential of Coastal San Luis Obispo County."
