2015 was the year "the drought hit us the hardest," says Brian Talley. "We picked Pinot Noir on July 15. It was unbelievable. The vines were so stressed." The 2015 Chardonnay Rosemary's Vineyard is scented of petrichor, saline and crushed shell to begin, and then it opens up to white blossoms, lime peel, dried hay and white peaches. In the mouth, it's light to medium-bodied, full of zippy, zingy energy and is minerally with just a dash of savory character, finishing long and nuanced.
