“An Excellent Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir” 2008 Talbott Logan Pinot Noir

“Here’s a review of a pinot noir that I tasted over the past two days and thought was really terrific, actually an exemplar of what Monterey County pinot should be. This is the Talbott Logan Pinot Noir 2008, Santa Lucia Highlands. I used the word ‘lovely’ so many times in my notes on the Talbott Logan Pinot Noir 2008 that I started to feel like a songwriter of the 1930s. The color is a lovely medium ruby with a darker, more intense core. The (lovely) bouquet, pure and radiant, offers plum, red currants and a bit of mulberry with hints of sassafras and cloves and a slight undertone of briers and brambles. This is smooth as silk, sleek as satin, subtle and supple, almost edgeless in its impeccable balance. Black cherry and red currant flavors open to elements of smoke, lavender and sandalwood, with further dimensions of forestry earthiness and slate-like minerality, though these qualities are almost subliminal. The wine aged 11 months in French oak but you recognize that act only by a slight increase of woody spice and dryness of texture on the finish. Just freakin’ lovely. Drink now through 2012 or ‘13.” Frederick Koeppel Bigger Than Your Head

89 Points 2009 Talbott Pinot Noir, Logan

“Bright violet color. Pungent scents of black raspberry, smoky minerals, flowers and cracked pepper. Displays brighter red fruits on the palate, with fine-grained tannins adding gentle grip. Shows a smoky quality on the back end, which displays good finishing lift and spicy cut.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here

“In Monterey, Great Taste Just Goes with the Territory” 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Kali Hart

“Talbott Winery’s Dan Karlsen is the expressive, self-described ‘former hippie’ and an avid believer in the excellence of Monterey Pinot Noir, calling it ‘the wine of kings.’ He champions a ‘vineyard first’ approach to winemaking ‘to obtain a vibrant cool climate appeal, that is all about flavor.’ His ‘08 Talbott Kali Hart has spicy blueberry and cherry notes with nine months in French Oak.” Frank Mangio Coast News

"Ruby-Colored Gem" 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

"Today, Robb Talbott makes some of the best wines from the Central Coast of California. Two releases, the Logan and the Kali Hart, are named for his children. The wine Gary picked to pair with the Thanksgiving repast was a single-vineyard bottling, the 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. This ruby-colored gem is a precise and perfect a Pinot as those ties that Audrey made so many years ago by hand. At $42 a bottle it is priced for those who want something a little special to toast their thanks.” - Kelly J. Hayes Aspen Times - Click here

"For the Red Lovers" Talbott Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

For the red lovers in the crowd, Pinot Noir is the most natural pairing with gamey birds like turkey. Again we like those from Talbott like the Sleepy Hollow...All of these Pinot Noirs are highlighted by slight earthiness and cherry flavors and aromas, and enough acid to pair with a big meal. - George Balling Coeur D' Alene Press - Click here

90 Points 2009 Talbott Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Medium red. Fragrant aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and peppery spices, with a hint of woodsmoke. Juicy and sweet on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering tangy red berry flavors and a touch of bitter herbs. Shows an appealing jamminess on the finish, with the raspberry and spice notes repeating. This seamless, smooth pinot has the depth to handle richer foods but it's carrying little excess weight.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here

87 Points 2009 Talbott Pinot Noir Kali Hart

“Deep red. Black raspberry and cherry on the nose. Ripe and fleshy, with deep dark fruit flavors that coat the palate but could use more vivacity. Finishes broad and persistent, with a slightly loose-knit character. Best served with a light chill.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here
