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

This is a big, intensely fruity wine, bold and in-your-face with cherries, raspberries, cola and carob flavors, with the silky elegance that Pinot demands. Gold Best of Class - National Women's Wine Competition 2008 www.nwwc.info 94 Points, 2007, www.Grapelive.com 94 points, 2007, Wine X Magazine

A big fruity, flavourful pinot. Cherries, cranberries on the nose and tongue - well balanced and a lingering feel of a fine wine. Let this one open up for a bit it gets better as it breaths. Though yummy by itself, this Pinot is awesome with food. Thank you Tudor Family!

A traditional California Pinot with it's strong fruit bouquets and lighter style, but needs quite some time to open up. After breathing, it reveals much more earthy and robust flavors.

This bright beauty has full aromas of creamy bing cherries, dried cranberries, a touch of leafy green tobacco, toffee, almonds, and ground white pepper. An elegant wine of subtle depth, it brims with the promise of the region it comes from. The Santa Lucia Highlands (pronounced Lou-Chee-ah) runs north to south along the coast in Monterey County.

A bit rough on first sip, but started to open later in evening and into next evening. I liked the feel and after notes. My only bottle but would try it again.

Aromas of cranberry, earth, and rustic black plum will entice you to savor our Pinot's intense fruit on the palate. A texture like nubby raw silk follows, with hints of cocoa - a hint to our best Pinot's ability to age. You can enjoy this wine now or hold it for 3 to 7 years to allow for even more vineyard expression to come out.
