Talbott Pinot Noir Logan United States-California-Monterey 2008
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. 88ptsAdd winemaker's notes

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
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
bright red cherries, cranberries, a little cedar and earth, cinnamon spice, nice complexity of flavors, delicate, juicy and good
fruit forward, loaded with red fruit, bing cherry and ripe raspberries. exuberant fun wine, easy to drink on its own
dark earthy cherries, little bit rustic on the nose, mixed red berries fill the palate with a little cedar, yum!
Yellow and spiced but overall mellow. Leaves. Lumbering.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
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.
External Reviews for Talbott Pinot Noir Logan United States-California-Monterey
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.
