ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2007 Chardonnay Rincon Vineyard is slightly less powerful than the Rosemary’s, has a shade deeper medium straw color and loads of nectarine, orange blossom, and honey, as well as a hint of caramel in the aromatics. Like all of these Chardonnays, the aromas are intensely perfumed, adding another factor in the wine’s seductive appeal. Rich and intense, perhaps even possessing the strongest inner core of depth and richness, this is a beautiful Chardonnay from the Talley family. While there is something unabashedly Californian about it, tasting it ultimately makes one think of white Burgundy. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Greenish gold. Intensely perfumed, pungent, exotic scents of pear, Meyer lemon, iodine and smoky lees. Deeply concentrated and lively, offering powerful citrus, melon and mineral flavors, with complicating notes of spicecake and anise. The finish is spicy and strikingly mineral-driven, with a strong echo of iodine.
The 2007 year began with an exceptionally cold winter which prolonged dormancy. Bud break was very even and the remainder of the year hosted mild temperatures with one unusual heat spike in September. The harvest was very small in the Rincon Vineyard, yet the quality of the fruit was exceptional with concentrated, intense flavors.
