The 2016 Pinot Noir from Bishop’s Peak, Brian Talley’s entry-level range, delivers the goods for a great price. From a superb vintage, it’s balanced and energetic, deftly playing ripeness off of finesse and showing pure red fruit and floral character, seamless texture and spicy persistence. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2018)

Yum. Very nice, reminds me of Sean Minor Pinot. Medium bodied, nice juiciness a little tannic. I like it.

Light, bright, Oregon Pinot. Excellently pairs with mild cheeses and vegetables
