93 Points 2008 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Year after year, this continues to be one of the most outstanding Chardonnays in California. When I recently tasted the 2008 it seemed particularly, and enticingly, floral. I found myself fantasizing over my glass that if you could put all your favorite fragrant flowers into a blender and then magically distill the essence of their mingled perfume, the result would be the enchanting aromatics of this Sleepy Hollow Chard. But the intense bouquet is just the beginning. There is also the voluptuous body, and the rich flavors which capture the fundamental nature of peaches and nectarines, pears, nuts, lemon peel. And then, despite so much richness on the palate, the wine finishes clean and very dry.” Marguerite Thomas Wine Review Online - Click here
