Talbott Logan Chardonnay 2016$31.00
More than any other vineyard, Sleepy Hollow has helped put Monterey and the Santa Lucia Highlands on the map as world-renowned winegrowing regions. With panoramic views of the Salinas Valley and beyond, Sleepy Hollow is perched on an ex pansive benchland 13 miles from Monterey Bay. The well-drained vineyard features sparse soils comprised of sand, gravel, and granite. These soils reduce yields and create rich, concentrated flavors in the grapes.

With a long, cool growing season, the grapes develop the character, intensity and depth of flavor for which the vineyard has become famous.
