“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

89 Points 2009 Talbott Chardonnay, Logan

“Bright gold. Smoky, lees-accented aromas of pear, melon and white flowers, with building spiciness. A juicy, palate-caressing midweight, with good depth and energy to its orchard fruit and candied citrus flavors. The spicy note comes back on the delineated, persistent finish.” Josh Raynolds International Wine Cellar - Click here

“Highlands Artisans Showcase Brilliant 09s” 2009 Talbott Pinot Noir, Logan

“The most impressive lineups had to be those offered by Talbott and...Pretty much each wine they poured was memorable, impressive and, in some cases, so delicious it was hard to spit. I’d also have to tip my glass to the 2009 Talbott Pinot Noir, Logan for delivering a thrilling Maserati-like experience at a Kia Sephia price.” Laura Ness The Californian - Click here
