91 pts Wine Spectator -"Tight and focused, with a firm mineral and pebble base, leading to ripe cherry, berry and plum fruit that's focused, concentrated, full-bodied and persistent. Drink now through 2014. 2,497 cases made. –JL" Wine Spectator "Very pretty yet focused with elegant aromas of black cherries, cloves and cinnamon spice. Just when you think it is delicate, the finish proves you wrong with its ever lasting length." - Alpana Singh - Master Sommelier

90 points Wine Spectator - Spice, fresh earth, dried berry and plum fruit is tight, full-bodied, complex and focused. Trim and balanced, ending with minerally tannins. Drink now through 2014. 244 cases made. If SLH is Skipper then the Sarmento is definitely Barbie; much flashier, a better wardrobe and more toys. Silky, supple mouthfeel, flavor reminds me of cherries jubilees with a healthy dose of cinnamon and clove spice. Alpana Singh -- Master Sommelier 91 points Wine Enthusiast "Beautiful and immediately appealing, showing cool-climate coastal acidity and the long hangtime flavors this Central Coast appellation encourages. Dry and silky but full-bodied, the jammy black cherry, currant, tangerine, mocha and spice flavors are wrapped into firm tannins. Best now with decanting, and through 2010. S.H.

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.

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.
