94 Wine Enthusiast - Pleasantly bold and rugged aromas of smashed mulberry, plum, dried meat, mace and pepper make for a compelling nose on this bottling from a iconic vineyard. Soft tannins frame plush baked plum flavors on the palate, where nutmeg and cinnamon add complexity.
Talbott Vineyards Pinot Noir offers aromas of savory spice with notes of plum, blackberry and vanilla. Rich on the palate, our Pinot Noir offers a soft, mouth-filling texture with an underlying minerality, vibrant acidity and satiny finish. - Winery
Talbott Vineyards is one of the original estate wineries that helped establish Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. For 40 years, Talbott has honed the craft of creating distinct expressions of cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, bringing this unique coastal-influenced region to life in the glass. Talbott Vineyards crafts estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir inspired by the traditions of Burgundy. With two estate vineyards located in Monterey County, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard and Diamond T Vineyard, Talbott offers a portfolio of exceptional wines to enjoy.
The Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, located in the Santa Lucia Highlands, was designated one of California’s Grand Cru vineyards by Wine Enthusiast in 2016 for its ability to produce exceptional wines year after year, even under challenging conditions. With rolling hills and mountains, lush green land and bright blue skies, this vineyard has remarkable beauty. First planted in 1972, the vineyard is comprised of 565 planted acres divided into three vineyard parcels, Sleepy Hollow North, Sleepy Hollow West and Sleepy Hollow South. Each grows exclusively Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
