Winemaker's Notes

Case Pinot Noir is named after Robb and Cynthia Talbott's eldest daughter, Sarah Case. Grapes for Case Pinot Noir come from the finest sections of the acclaimed Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. Located adjacent to the winery in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, Sleepy Hollow has been part of the Robert Talbott Vineyards estate since 1985. Traditional Burgundian methods, including hand picking and sorting; long, cool fermentation in small open-top tanks; and punching down the cap by hand, result in a full-bodied wine with a massive velvety texture. The wine is aged in French Oak. Case Pinot Noir has excellent structure and ample soft tannins, which make it an ideal candidate for extended aging, yet the wine's ripe, forward fruit make it an excellent wine to enjoy upon release.
