From the highly esteemed and talented winemakers of Talley Vineyards, we bring you this Talley Vineyards Arroyo Grande Estate Pinot Noir. Fill your glasses and set out a large dish of porcini mushroom bites. Prepare for great delight. Depending on your gathering, we have three suggestions for this righteously delicious California Pinot. The classic combination of salmon brings to mind a rosemary-rubbed side of salmon with salted, roast potatoes. To celebrate the luscious fruit, grill some lamb chops and top them with a warm pomegranate relish. For a real WOW factor, we say beef tenderloin with red wine sauce, creamed spinach and truffled french fries. Did you just hear a pin drop?? No one's going to leave without a last course, so bring out the decanter you've had resting during dinner, and refill the glasses to go with an Italian Pecornio Foglie di Noce cheese. It's rustic, delectable, and perfect for this Talley Vineyards torrent of flavor. Who's hungry??
Wine Enthusiast: "Designated Editors' Choice. "This appellation blend is more than the sum of its parts. Fresh aromas of candied raspberry, sumac, cinnamon and mint lead into a explosive palate of freshly smashed berry, pomegranate and dewy sage. Brisk acidity keeps it lively through the finish."
