Talbott Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands Sleepy Hollow Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Connoisseurs' Guide: Scents of fresh-picked Gala apples are met by those of lemon blossoms, toast and vanilla in the light but very precise aromas of this engaging young wine, and what you smell is just what you get in its flavors. It is full-bodied, firm and finished with crisp, cleansing acidity that contributes both brightness and length, and, while it will make fine drinking now with simply grilled salmon or swordfish, it has clear potential for a few years of growth. (Apr 2012)

One of the biggest, boldest, ripest Chardonnays in California, marked as usual by intense flavors, which the winemaker has boosted with oak. Just explodes in pineapple and apricot jam, tangerine custard and buttered toast, brightened by zesty acidity. The wine will age, gradually losing fruit and picking up roasted nut notes.

Fresh and vibrant, with snappy citrus, green apple and pineapple flavors that have a pithy texture, yet this slowly unwinds to offer more depth and a toasty oak edge. Best from 2013 through 2020.
