2015 Talbott "Logan - Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay

SKU #1352843 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Opening with gregarious guava, warm pineapple and honeydew melon notes with hints of allspice, toasty oak and cashew pieces, the 2015 Chardonnay Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a medium to full body and pleasant oiliness to the texture, with bombastic tropical and savory flavors that give great persistence. (LPB)  (9/2017)

91 points Vinous

 Light, bright gold. Aromas of ripe melon, pear nectar and Meyer lemon, with subtle fennel and jasmine accents emerge with air. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors that are given lift by a spine of zesty acidity. Finishes sappy and quite long, with an echo of ripe citrus fruits and lingering florality. (JR)  (11/2017)

Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 Chardonnay Logan is a value priced effort that offers loads of classic orchard fruits, spice, and brioche in a rich, medium-bodied, rounded, impressively textured style. It's not going to make old bones but is a delicious effort to drink over the coming year or three.  (10/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Juicy and well-spiced, with concentrated flavors of butterscotch, apple pastry and ripe pear. The spicy finish has good verve. Drink now through 2020. (KM)  (7/2017)

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
