96 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Deep garnet. Fresh red and dark berry, floral and exotic spice qualities on the assertively perfumed nose, along with suggestions of cola, smoky minerals and succulent herbs. Shows superb clarity and spicy lift to the juicy cherry, raspberry and boysenberry flavors, which slowly deepen and turn spicier through the midpalate. Closes extremely long, smooth and precise, with resonating florality and a sweetening suggestion of vanilla. All destemmed fruit and 35% new French oak. Drink: 2023-2033. (Jan 2021)"

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Darker berry fruits as well as camphor, leather, white flowers, and underbrush nuances all emerge from the 2019 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard, a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, bright, almost racy Pinot Noir that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age. All destemmed and aged 15 months in 35% new French oak, it should have well over a decade of longevity. (9/30/21)"

92-94+ points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "A barrel sample, the 2018 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard has a pale to medium ruby color and bombastic scents of raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and pomegranate preserves with accents of blood orange, potpourri, dried flowers, tree bark and amaro. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is bright, lively and intensely flavored with loads of floral nuance, a gentle frame and that classic, bright Talley freshness, finishing on a potpourri note. (Feb 2020)"

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smoked game, hearty black-plum and wet slate and clay aromas make for a heady entry to the nose of this bottling. Smoked berry and licorice flavors prove soft, clean and full on the palate, where a lingering acidity pushes deep into the finish. Alcohol 13.9%. (Mar 2021)"
