Talbott Logan Pinot Noir 2014


SKU 705105469317


Our Talbott Pinot Noir, Logan is made to strike a perfect balance between the pure fruit character of our estate grapes, and the influence of our winemaker Dan Karlsen, a Pinot Noir specialist. It shows beautiful aromas and flavors of cherry, blueberry and blackberry, supported by subtle vanilla and cinnamon spice elements. On the palate, smooth tannins and rich berry notes lead to a satisfying finish with hints of smoky vanilla from the French oak aging. Logan Pinot Noir is named after Robb Talbott's son.

VinousBright ruby-red. Blackberry, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the fragrant, spice-accented nose. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that tighten up and become sweeter with air. A smoky nuance arrives on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, spice-driven persistence.

Wine EnthusiastSeared yellow apple, lemon rinds and pressed white flowers show on the nose of this bottling from the pioneering winery, which was recently acquired by the Gallo family. The texture is quite steely with bountiful acidity, but the flavors are a little flat on the sip, where stone fruit and squeezed citrus show.
