2016 Talisman Pinot Noir Gunsalus Vineyard Russian River Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95 Points
Harmony and genteel richness are notable in this wine from start to finish. The aromas are a perfume of dried red cherry, cranberry, plum galette, mulling spice, sandalwood and star anise scents. It is gently creamy on the palate, where dried cherry, dried orange, cranberry, dark rose, hazelnut nougat, nutmeg, mulling spice and sandalwood flavors linger well and with a food-worthy balance. If well evolved, it is likely to get better over the next eighteen months. 357 cases made.
