Talbott Kali Hart Pinot Noir 2017
Kali Hart is our most fruit-forward expression of our estate vineyards. Approachable and bright, this complex Pinot Noir opens with aromas of Bing cherry, cola, boysenberry and hints of vanilla. On the palate, intense notes of rich red and black berries are supported by hints of oak and are accentuated by soft, silky tannins. The finish is clean and luscious with hints of minerality, herbs and French oak nuance. This wine is an elegant rendering of its cool climate origins in our estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands and truly represents the beauty of Pinot Noir.
