Talbott Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastConcentrated raspberry and brambleberry aromas mix with iron and brown mushrooms on the nose of this wine from a historic vineyard originally planted in 1972. The palate is sanguine with bloody meats and pencil lead, with earthy beet-juice flavors and unrelenting minerality, almost like licking the earth itself.
Wine SpectatorDistinctive, with a rich, chewy texture and a dense core of earth-laced wild berry, currant, licorice and cedar flavors. Very young and tight, but this may surprise after a few years. Drink now through 2021. 7,100 cases made.
