This is an alluring pinot noir from Talbott Vineyards' "Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The fruit is dark and sweet, with a perfume of wild strawberries and black cherries. The 2010 Pinot has beautiful balance and texture. It's a wonderful match with bold flavors — roast duck, pork vindaloo or Hungarian goulash.
