Perhaps more than any other vineyard, Sleepy Hollow has helped put Monterey and the Santa Lucia Highlands on the map as world-renowned winegrowing regions. With panoramic views of the Salinas Valley and beyond, it is perched on an expansive bench land 13 miles from Monterey Bay. The well-drained vineyard features sparse soils that reduce yields and, along with the long, cool growing season, create the character, intensity and depth of flavour for which the vineyard has become famous. This wine is Talbott’s distinctive expression of world-class Pinot Noir that the Sleepy Hollow Vineyard can produce. It offers aromas of savoury spice and opulent dark fruit, including cola, plum and blackberry along with hints of vanilla. Rich on the palate, luscious notes of black cherry, raspberry, clove and nutmeg meld for a soft, mouth-filling texture. An elegant and luxurious Pinot Noir, this wine has an underlying minerality and vibrant acidity to complement a satiny smooth finish with a delightful touch of well-heeled tannins and hard spices.
