Notes from the Winemaker:

Chosen from the 10 most exceptional barrels of Chardonnay from our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard and named in honor of Robb's eldest daughter, Sarah (formerly known as Carlotta, same wine). Crafted by our winemaker Dan Karlsen from a prized block of older vines. Aged in 100% new French oak barrels. Cuvee Sarah displays the elegance and grace of Talbott’s renowned Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. This limited production (250 cases) full bodied Chardonnay displays rich notes of peach, nectarine, and toasted hazelnut.


Ratings & Reviews



93 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Light gold. Sexy orchard fruit, oak spice and floral aromas, with notes of candied ginger and vanilla adding complexity. Aeration brings up lively citrus fruit and mineral nuances, which add focus to the wine's lush poached pear and nectarine flavors. Suavely marries power and vivacity and finishes smoky, spicy and very long." -Josh Raynolds (Nov/Dec 13)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"From the same vineyard, yet focusing on a single, cool plot of 12-year old vines, the 2011 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Cuvee Sarah Case spent 14 months, on lees, in 90% new French oak. Racy and lively, with clean, crisp apple, citrus, mineral, kiwi and toasted bread all emerging from the glass, it is beautifully focused and pure on the palate, with loads of juicy acidity emerging on the mid-palate and finish. I like the mix of richness and freshness, and this could be even better with another year of bottle age. It should drink nicely through 2018. Drink now-2018." -Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2013)
