Found 3 of the last bottles in PA at $30 close out price. If I could, I would buy up all the remaining bottles. This was a profound, beautiful Veeder cabernet that is in a really amazing place. Tannins are fully resolved, good fruit, earthy.

I decanted half the bottle on night 1 without food, and then drank the remainder via decanter with some pasta. Both times were incredible. 2 more bottles!

I haven't tried it yet... but your notes make me look forward to it. This another example that you can "cherry pick" so good values in the PA system if you work at it! Cheers.

Enjoyed over 2 days. Nose is soft raspberry jam (muted, not bright) and rose and floral notes, with a hint of spice (dare I say - white pepper)... Palate is same muted raspberry/strawberry jam, smoky, and a some earthy tones. A little tart at the finish, with some acidity. Medium finish.

I really like the wine... and at $19 it has a great QPR!

    11/3/17, 7:38 AM - I often "cherry pick" from PA state stores on "slow moving stock" that they markdown... so yes, picked up a case at $19. My local store will do an internal transfer no matter where in the state the excess stock sits. A great way to punch up the QPR in an otherwise "controlled" state market.

Agree with the previous notes praising this wine. PnP so I probably drank too quickly before it fully showed itself. Bright, red fruited pinot with a touch of citrus and sassafras. A touch cloudy.

    10/24/14, 8:17 AM - Agree - this was a very nice PN... good complexity and the right amount of acidity on the finish... but sassafras, wow - I need to try to recall that essence in it.... great description though. First time I've had a Talley PN - it was a nice treat - thanks!
