The Wines:

Robert Parker gave Talbott wines some great scores and reviews.  Here is what he had to say specifically about each wine he reviewed (2008 vintages):

Talbott "Logan" Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay 2008 - Robert Parker [92 pts]
"The 2008 Chardonnay Logan (a selection from the Sleepy Hollow Vineyard) is a slightly fruitier, more structured style of Chardonnay from Talbott. Light straw-colored, the wine displays notes of nectarine, kiwi, orange marmalade, honey, and subtle oak. Cutting a broad swath across the palate, it is full-bodied, rich, and impressively endowed. It is the best Talbott Chardonnay in a number of years."

Talbott "Logan" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2009 - Robert Parker [92 pts] (2008 vintage):
"The 2008 Pinot Noir Logan has wild berry and sandalwood notes, a slightly darker ruby color, richer, more dramatic flavors of red and blue fruits, and some nice spice and earth. This beauty is broad, savory, and can be drunk now or cellared for another 7-8 years."

Talbott "Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" Chardonnay 2008 - Robert Parker [91 pts] - Stephen Tanzer [91 pts]
"From their estate vineyards, the 2008 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a beautiful nose of honeysuckle, tropical fruit, and other assorted floral notes. Light straw-colored, it possesses full-bodied richness, good acidity, and some subtle underlying minerality. This is a beautiful Chardonnay to drink over the next 3-4 years."

Talbott "Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" Pinot Noir 2008  - Robert Parker [90 pts]
"The 2008 Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a similar dark ruby color as well as an attractively perfumed nose of red and blue fruits, spice box, and a touch of earth and background wood. It is rich, textured, and slightly more structured than the Logan (or at least the tannins appear more present). It's a beauty as well."

Talbott "Kali Hart" Pinot Noir 2008  - Robert Parker [88 pts]
"The 2008 Pinot Noir Kali Hart has a medium ruby color and a big, smoky, spicy nose with plenty of mulberry and black cherry fruit. Almost Burgundian in its aromatics, the wine is medium-bodied, pure, and nicely textured. This is a delicious, well-made Pinot Noir to drink over the next 2-4 years."

Talbott "Kali Hart" Chardonnay 2008 - Robert Parker [87 pts]
"Take, for example, the 2008 Chardonnay Kali Hart. It displays loads of poached pear, pineapple, and honey in an impressively perfumed bouquet. In the mouth, it is soft, fleshy, and medium-bodied, with just enough acidity to give it balance. It is a fruity, consumer-friendly style of Chardonnay to drink over the next year."
