91 Points 2008 Talbott Chardonnnay, Kali Hart

“This is a lovely, well-balanced Chardonnay. The nose is intoxicating with layered aromas of pineapple, citrus fruits, melon, white peach, butterscotch, and oak. On the palate, the wine is smooth, yet still crisp, as flavors of melon, orange, and pineapple unfold into a soft vanilla finish. A standout Chardonnay from this past year, the fact that it’s under $15 is a wonderful bonus.” Jason Barlow Food & Beverage

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

"Four Stars" 2009 Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard

“Rich and very ripely flavored, this Chardonnay is so ripely flavored that it tastes sweet (pineapple, honey). Luscious and intense, with a long finish—unusually fruity in style.”

"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

"Buttery California Chardonay" 2009 Talbott Chardonnay Kali Hart

“Try if you like: Buttery California Chardonnay. If you like bold, creamy, oaky, and tropical fruit-filled Chardonnays, then don’t miss this one. It’s a soul-warming white that exhibits hints for fresh pineapple, melon, vanilla, and butterscotch. It has a lush, creamy mouth feel that’s balanced by an acidity that isn’t aggressive but lets you know its there. It’s all estate-grown fruit from a producer I’ve loved for many years. 

Thanksgiving Day: A wine of this bold, creamy, character wouldn’t generally be the first on my list of suggestions, but some people, including my mother, absolutely love a big, oaky California Chard. This Talbott will put a smile on the faces of your Chardonnay-loving friends and family, and it actually works quite nicely with the textures of the turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy. I’ll be bringing this to my mom’s.” Joe Iurato The Record - 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

"The 2009 Kali Hart Chard is perfect" 2009 Talbott Chardonnay Kali Hart

“The night before Thanksgiving we often have family members or friends who have traveled from faraway places spending the night. With all of the food preparation the next day we try to keep the meal simple. One of our favorites is a meal of the first of the season Dungeness crab with a big green salad, fresh bread and Louis dressing. The natural for crab is Chardonnay and with the reemergence of Talbott Winery from the central coast of California, the 2009 Kali Hart Chard is perfect. The wine is fermented mostly in stainless steel with some oak treatment too making for a wine with all of the butter notes to highlight the crab but with leanness and texture to pull the meal together.” - 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
