Deep and intense on the nose with gently stemmy accents with smoky topnotes over wild blackberry and wild cherry fruit. Big and rich in the mouth with tons of sweet fruit. This is a bowl of mixed cherries in the mouth with nicely balanced acidy and a bed of finely-grained tannins for support. The mid-palate is fairly dark and certainly deep with a nice wood element on the finish, though there’s not much length here. The alcohol is very well integrated with a touch of heat on the finish. 88pts

This is spicy and almost minty on the nose, with lots of red fruit, some cola notes and an overall holiday feel to it. With air the fruit gains a peachy nuance and shows additional dried herb notes. This is nicely ripe in the mouth, smooth and even a touch dense, yet it preserves its herbal-tinged fresh red berry character. It’s nicely spiced on the mid-palate and has the faintest edge of tannin adding a bit of texture as well. The finish is a touch minty at first, then turns a bit spicier with candied red cherry fruit and a softly sweet impression on the finale. 88pts

This smells warm and inviting, with beefy tones and cola notes helping to frame the dark cherry and black berry fruits on the nose. There’s a nice touch of wood spice here with some polleny, floral top notes. Big and silky smooth on entry, with vibrant black cherry and black raspberry fruits that have a lightly roasted edge to them. The mid-palate is round and has some milky oak tones and some nice menthol, almost medicinal spice tones. The finish is rich and a bit sticky with slightly jammy blackberry fruits and a touch of wood tannin and spice on the finale. 90pts

I was a little disappointed with this one. It was too spicy for me, and I had a hard time getting through a whole glass.

Winemaker Notes - Crafted using carefully selected all Estate Grown grapes from our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. This wine combines fruit from both mature vines and youthful elite Pommard and Dijon clone vines, to create a lush medium bodied Pinot Noir with flavors of ripe cherry and blueberry. Tasting Notes - Logan Pinot Noir has ripe blueberry and dark stone fruit flavors with just a hint of spice from ageing in French Oak.

The 2008 vintage is medium garnet in color. On the nose, this wine shows inviting blueberry, ripe cherry and floral accents, with smoke notes and a touch of minerality. Segueing to flavors of blueberry and cherry-cola on the palate, it displays a seamless blend of richness, depth and silky texture.

The 2007 Talbott Vineyards Pinot Noir exhibits a garnet hue, with youthful intensity and excellent clarity. With its inviting aromas of fresh, ripe fruit, cherry and plum lead to signature floral notes, and elements of sweet French oak and spicy cinnamon. On the palate, this elegant and silky Pinot displays rich texture and amazing ripe fruit, underscored by mid-palate layers of rose petal, violet, cinnamon and cedar. A lasting finish reveals more luscious fruit layers underscored by lively acidity, which leaves the palate refreshed.

Logan delivers a no-nonsense Pinot Noir from Sleepy Hollow Vineyard expressing the darker side of Pinot Noir andmdash; plums, black cherries and a hint of earth which adds to the velvety impression of this round, medium-bodied red. Delicious, consistently dependable wine.
