2015 Talbott Pinot Noir 'Sleepy Hollow Vineyard’ Santa Lucia Highlands
Winemaker Notes:Like all of our wines, our Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. It has aromas of bright cherry and plum leading to floral and spicy French oak notes. On the palate, this Pinot Noir displays a rich texture, soft, velvety tannins and ripe fruit. Flavors of Bing cherry and red plum lead to a long finish with vanilla oak and lively acidity. This wine defines the Talbott style, with power, richness, integrated oak, and cool-climate acidity.
Our famed 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.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a nose of crushed raspberries, cranberries and forest floor with hints of potpourri and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied with velvety tannins and lovely freshness, it has exuberant red berry flavors and a good long earth-laced finish."
