Round and supple, time in the bottle have brought together the tropical fruit flavors with the citrus nuances and toasty, delicious barrel spice.
The ‘09 Sierra Madre shows classic Santa Maria Valley stone fruit character of peaches and apricots along with minerality. Hint of citrus and tropical fruit round out the flavor profile with delicious barrel spice.
A wine of balance and restraint with underlying power. The signature flinty soil character is evident accenting the citrusy flavors and aromas.
A Chardonnay of balance, structure and refinement. Along with the Talley signature minerality, the aroma shows lemony/limey, clove and nutmeg notes. The energy and freshness are obvious, the subtle flavors of anise and citrus are less obvious. 91 points Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
A combination of a rich, viscous texture with slight tropical fruit flavors backed by gentle toasty oak, make this Chardonnay a knock out. 90 points The Wine Spectator.
