Like all of our wines, our Talbott Pinot Noir, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. It has aromas of bright cherry and plum leading to floral and spicy French oak notes. On the palate, this Pinot Noir displays a rich texture, soft, velvety tannins and ripe fruit. Flavors of Bing cherry and red plum lead to a long finish with vanilla oak and lively acidity. This wine defines the Talbott style, with power, richness, integrated oak, and cool-climate acidity.
The 2012 growing season was nearly perfect from start to finish. No rain and consistent temperatures allowed for a great fruit set and our typical long growing season led to exceptional quality grapes with excellent natural acidity and richness.
