Impressive for its steely presentation. Tilts heavily towards a French-style of chard, but straddles the divide well. Apples and pears on the nose. Bracing acidity on the mid palate. White stone fruits blend with quince. Finishes bone dry. A style that’s not for everyone, but enjoyable. — 5 days ago
Happy 4th of July to everyone. We have been experiencing a bit of heat here in the Chicago area and I have decided to open the 2013 Talbott Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands of California.
On the nose I am able to tell there is pineapple, lemon, pear, honeysuckle, almond and a good amount of minerality.
The palate has lemon, apple, white peach, pear, minerality and wet flint rock.
This wine is dry, medium bodied whit a creamy mouthfeel and medium + acidity that leads into a mineral driven medium to long finish. Please be safe tonight while enjoying your holiday festivities. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 14 days ago
2013 vintage, drank July 11, 2019. Color is medium + for a Chardonnay - color of gunpowder green tea. Nose of dry sweet honey, dry grass and earth as well as oaky qualities - quite aromatic. On the palate - more dry than you would expect from the nose, rich with soft mouthfeel, medium sweet, medium + acidity, medium + minerality, oak. Reminds me of the wines of the Amalfi Coast. Age has been good for this wine. — 7 days ago
Brought this back from the vineyard years ago and actually aged better than would be expected. Light with only a hint of oak, some alcohol at the end and also a touch of butter as well. Fruit could be nectarine or white peach. Lighter than many- can be had as a cocktail or with many mightier foods. — 2 hours ago
