Bright magenta. Lively raspberry, cherry, allspice and floral scents are energized by a bright mineral quality. Appealingly sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering red fruit preserve, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that become more lively on the back half. Subtle tannins lend shape to a long, juicy finish that repeats the floral and spice notes.
Kali Hart is the most fruit-forward expression in Talbott's portfolio. Approachable and bright with a beautiful garnet color in the glass, the 2018 Pinot Noir is ripe and intense. Aromas of Bing cherry, cola, boysenberry and hints of vanilla lift from the glass, and layers of rich blackberries are underscored by soft, silky tannins. A luscious finish follows with accents of minerality, dried herbs and French oak. Kali Hart Pinot Noir is an elegant representation of its cool climate terroir of our estate vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands in California.
