Kali Hart is our most fruit-forward expression of our estate vineyards. Approachable and bright, this complex Pinot Noir opens with aromas of Bing cherry, cola, boysenberry and hints of vanilla. On the palate, intense notes of rich red and black berries are supported by hints of oak and are accentuated by soft, silky tannins. The finish is clean and luscious with hints of minerality, herbs and French oak nuance.
In much the same way that Talbott Vineyards devotes itself to handcrafting world-class wines using only the most exceptional raw materials, Robert Talbott Inc. has earned a reputation as one of America's preeminent apparel brands for men and women. Established by Robert Talbott Sr. and his wife Audrey in 1950, Robert Talbott Inc. is recognized for crafting modern classics that embody the company's signature blend of quality and style. Today, Robert Talbott Inc. is guided by Talbott Vineyards founder Robb Talbott, who honors the legacy and traditions of his parents by maintaining their meticulous dedication to excellence.Robert (Robb) Sharpe Talbott was born in Connecticut on January 28, 1948, to Robert and Audrey Talbott. The family moved to the small seaside town of Carmel in 1950 and started the Robert Talbott Tie Company. At a young age, Robb began helping with the family business and worked throughout his youth in many capacities at the tie studio. He also traveled with his family on buying trips to Europe where, while visiting the vineyards in the Burgundy region of Southern France, the Talbott family developed their interest in wine.In 1981, Robb married and soon began a family that would grow to include the Talbott's three children: Sarah Case, Robert Logan and Kalin Hart. In 1982, Robb launched Talbott Vineyards with his father Robert Talbott Senior. Robb planted the first grapes on Diamond T Vineyard and began designing the winery the family would soon build in the Carmel Valley. He incorporated the same values into the winery that made the Robert Talbott Tie Company a success: an absolutely strict commitment to the highest quality standards in production; fostering and rewarding dedication and hard work from employees; recognizing the importance of each individual person in the organization, and involvement of the Talbott family in all phases of the business.
