Talbott Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay 2010
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastOne 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.
Wine SpectatorFresh 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.
