This episode of “Wine 101” is sponsored by Talbott Vineyards. Whether you’re hosting a casual cheese plate night or a spontaneous dinner party, Talbott’s 2019 Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Pinot Noir makes a perfect companion. With dense, rich cherry notes on the nose, a plush mouthfeel, and a classic Pinot Noir attitude, this wine is a crowd pleaser. The accessible price point and screw cap mean it’s ready for any occasion. I like to enjoy mine during a weekly board game night.
