This has the tell-tale power and breadth we always find the in the Diamond T Vineyard. Real push and intensity to the well ripened plum-laden fruit. It can cope with the lengthy 14 months in 80% new French oak effortlessly - unashamedly Californian - this is just beginning to really hit its stride now. Delicious, indulgent Pinot Noir, but there is the mark of Monterey restraint too - classic Talbott style - polished - but full on.

Talbott Pinot Noir, Diamond T Vineyard is made using a selection of the finest Dijon clone grapes from our Diamond T Vineyard. It has a deep, vibrant color and aromas of ripe fruit and exotic spices. The palate provides rich flavors of cherry, plum and spice, with clean, crisp acidity and supple tannins. Aging in 80 percent new French oak has contributed to the tannin structure, as well as the complexity of this wine, which concludes with a round, lingering finish. This wine is a cool-climate Pinot Noir that shows the power and elegance of the Diamond T Vineyard.


After being inspired by a boyhood trip to Burgundy, Robb Talbott built his wine estate almost single-handedly planting vines in the rocky barren Diamond T vineyard in 1982. In 1994 he acquired Sleepy Hollow in the Santa Lucia Highlands, a phylloxera-free vineyard planted in 1972. Together with winemaker Dan Karlsen, Robb is making some of Monterey's (even California's) finest Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
