Notes from the Winemaker:

Delightful wine to drink on it's own or pair with cheese and food.  A classic style Chardonnay that displays refreshing and bright notes of apple, nectarine, and pear with subtle French Oak.  Estate grown from our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California.

Our Talbott Chardonnay, Logan, is named after Robb Talbott’s son Robert Logan Talbott. Offering a stylistic alternative to our Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, over the years this appealing wine has evolved to showcase a more fruit-driven interpretation of the classic Talbott house style, while still embodying the complexity and character of our acclaimed Sleepy Hollow Vineyard.

The initial impression offers lush tropical fruit followed by a citrus and mineral midpalate, and a long, clean, dry and satisfying lemon brioche.


Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2008 Chardonnay Logan (a selection from the Sleepy Hollow Vineyard) is a slightly fruitier, more structured style of Chardonnay from Talbott. Light straw-colored, the wine displays notes of nectarine, kiwi, orange marmalade, honey, and subtle oak. Cutting a broad swath across the palate, it is full-bodied, rich, and impressively endowed. It is the best Talbott Chardonnay in a number of years.

This is the most impressive lineup of wines I have seen from Talbott in a number of years. Their less expensive second label is a noteworthy value." - Robert Parker (8/2010)
