Santa Lucia Highlands, California, USA
Talbott Vineyards has been one of the leaders in pinot noir in Santa Lucia Highlands with their wines from their Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. The 2013 is a powerful, yet balanced, pinot noir with great energy and freshness. Ripe cherry-like fruit flavours dominate, while savoury nuances add complexity. This easy-to-recommend California pinot noir would be a good match for grilled hanger steak.
