"The Best Pinot Noir Yet From Talbott" 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“The spectacular 2008 Talbott Sleepy Hollow Pinot Noir is a real beauty. The best pinot noir yet from Talbott, it has expansive notes of ripe black cherry, blueberry, and spice, with just a hint of earth. It shows just how lovely Santa Lucia Highlands pinot noir can be and is silky, smooth, and rich. It pairs wonderfully with roasted duck.” Adam Zack Palm Springs Life

92 Points 2008 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Never a wine that falls short on full and outgoing expression, this latest version of Talbott's flagship effort boasts a dramatic yet mannerly blending of creamy, toasty oak with roasted lemons and a very solid background of brisk apple scents. Its fullness on the palate is unmistakable but so too is its great depth and polish, and if its distinct fruit is less than frontal, it is not without plenty of length and staying power. Some will find it drinkable now. We would prefer to wait a year or two for added layering to develop.” Charles Olken Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine

Amazing 2008 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“100% barrel fermentation gives this layers of rich, creamy stone and tropical fruits, baking spices, fresh-baked brioche and roasted hazelnuts. It is dense and complex with a long, generous finish.” - Kevin Keith Under the Grape Tree - Click here

91 Points 2008 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Bright yellow. A complex bouquet offers pineapple, white peach and jasmine, with hints of vanilla and butterscotch in the background. Fleshy pit and tropical fruit flavors provide very good palate coverage and pick up smokiness with air. Finishes with a refreshing bite of pear skin and with very good persistence.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here

90 Points 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Ruby-red. Intense aromas of black raspberry, cherry and licorice, with an exotic incense note gaining power with air. Lush and creamy on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, which offers sweet dark berry flavors and notes of cola and spice cake. Tannins arrive late and add shape and grip to a long, spicy finish.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here

89 Points 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“If you’re more a fan of red-fruit-focused Pinots than black-fruit blockbusters, there’s a lot to admire in this wine. It has aromas of red fruit and raspberries, along with flavors of sweet red berries and raspberry candy. I’d like just a touch more acidity in this wine, but it’s lovely nonetheless.” Tina Caputo Wine Review Online

92 Points 2008 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Here's a ripe, luscious Chardonnay -- it's 15.1% alcohol -- that manages to not be overblown. It's quite toasty, with strong notes of ripe pear and a hint of orange blossom on the finish. But it also has noticeable acidity and feels pleasantly leesy on the back of the tongue; no wonder, as it ages 12 months in barrels and the lees are stirred once a month. It's about as good as this style of Chardonnay gets, and if you like rich Chard you'll probably rate it even more highly than I do.” Blake Gray Wine Review Online

90 Points 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“This is a full-flavored Pinot Noir with a whopping 15.1% alcohol that manages to offer savory complexity and avoid overwhelming the palate. There's a strong black-tea character along with plenty of raspberry and cherry fruit. Sleepy Hollow Vineyard wines tend to be big, but this one is also limber.” Blake Gray Wine Review Online - Click here

90+ Points 2008 Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“This is the most impressive lineup of wines I have seen from Talbott in a number of years. The 2008 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a similar dark ruby color as well as an attractively perfumed nose of red and blue fruits, spice box, and a touch of earth and background wood. It is rich, textured, and slightly more structured than the Logan (or at least the tannins appear more present). It’s a beauty as well.” Robert Parker - Click here
