Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Rincon Vineyard 2012

Talley Vineyards Pinot Noir Rincon Vineyard 750ML 2012     
Sku: 10179

The Rincon Vineyard is located about eight miles east of the Pacific Ocean adjacent to the historic Rincon Adobe and Talley Vineyards winery. The east-west orientation of Arroyo Grande Valley channels the cool marine air to the vineyard, assuring a long, cool growing season. Planted in 1983 and 1984, the vines are grown on predominantly south facing slopes. The shallow, welldrained soils, reminiscent of those found in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, are alkaline in nature and comprised mainly of calcareous clay. The distinctive attributes of this site—cool climate, steep hillsides and low-yielding soils—combine to produce complex, richly textured wines that are concentrated, yet elegant.

 Wine Advocate 93 points (Nov 2014)
More sweet and forward than its siblings, with bright raspberry, crushed berries, flowers and spice, the 2012 Pinot Noir Rincon Vineyard is medium-bodied, supple and loaded with fruit. Aged 18 months in 30% new French oak, it’s one of the more forward, sexy and fruit-loaded Pinot Noirs in the lineup. Drink this beauty over the coming 4-5 years, although I wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve nicely for longer.
