93pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Talbott’s famed Sleepy Hollow Vineyard was described as a California Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyard by Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2016 for its ability to produce exceptional wines year after year. We've got the Talbott Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay 2014 vintage so that you can see for yourself. This single vineyard, estate Chardonnay is deliriously food friendly and will go with everything from fried shrimp to asparagus risotto to a fall roasted chicken with root vegetables. Oh, and Thanksgiving turkey; it pairs like a glove with turkey...

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "40% new French oak) Limpid yellow. A highly perfumed nose evokes fresh honeydew melon Meyer lemon pear nectar and white flowers and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Sappy concentrated and incisive on the palate offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and chamomile and saffron flourishes. A dusty mineral element adds vibrant lift and cut to the impressively long sharply delineated finish which leaves behind a suave floral note. Drinking window: 2021-2028." Oct 2018

Winery: "This wine is our distinctive expression of world-class Chardonnay that can be produced from the Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. Our flagship Chardonnay offers elegant aromas of jasmine and sandalwood along with richer notes of brioche and butterscotch. On the palate, lively minerality adds complexity to flavors of pear, green apple and lemon. Rich, elegant and luxurious, this Chardonnay has a satiny smooth finish with a delightful touch of cinnamon, vanilla and hard spices."
