Tudor Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Cs 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

I tasted through all of Dan's pinot noirs at the Family Winemaker event, and this one was a stand-ou both for its quality and its price. And while $39 for a bottle of wine isn't everyone's idea of a bargain, all things are relative - Dan's single-vineyard wines are demanding $60 a bottle, even in this price-conscious market!Tasting NotesLook for Dan's deft touch of oak on top of a foundation of ripe fruit. Despite the wine's phenolic ripeness, it came in with modest sugars, resulting in a very food-friendly alcohol level of just 14.3%. As such, this wine shows well during the cocktail hour but still compliments your culinary skills when taken to the table. Wines from Anderson Valley tend to offer up notes of forest floor, and this one is no exception.Cheers!Dave the Wine Merchant

In an increasingly mechanized world, there are still a few handcrafted products that stand out. Fine wine is one of them. At Tudor Wines, we select fruit from family-owned vineyards and transform it into wine using traditional techniques. These include small fermentations mixed by hand and aging in French barrels. The resulting wine has a purity of expression that cannot be duplicated on a larger scale. The 2000 Tudor Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir was the inaugural release from Tudor Wines. By working closely with our family growers and winemaking staff, we made sure that low yields combined with maximum grape maturity produced wine with optimal flavor profiles - a balance of ripeness, acidity, and tannins. - Dan and Christian Tudor Read less

Crisp acidity and very Burgundian in style. Orange peel on and aromatic on the nose. Classic Anderson Valley Pinot that really shows off the terroir. "90 points Wine Spectator -Complex loamy earth, dried berry and currant aromas are firm and structured, tight and focused, with hints of blueberry and floral scents. Drink now through 2014. 802 cases made. —J.L." Wine Spectator

This Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2006 - Tudor Family wine is fabulous. Today is 7-13-2011. My birthday gift from the 5th of July. I just uncorked it, let it breathe, as I finish frying shrimp tosca. It is a fabulous, rich, with a bold hold. You tend to let most of it set in your mouth, being careful not to swallow the sip.
