Nose is charred and stewed fruit with a hint of barnyard funk. The palate starts with strawberry jam, cherry pie, rhubarb pie, and plum with cinnamon, clove, and allspice emerging mid-palate. Menthol and American oak make an appearance near the end. Moderate plus acid and medium tannin and alcohol. This is a complex and substantial Pinot well representing the SLH designation. — 13 days ago
Bought it based on Sydney International Wine Show 2014 awards and subsequent newspaper articles on cheap Aldi wines.
At $13, pretty good value. Bit light but enjoyed it. — 5 years ago

At 40 barrels, this generic SLH Pinot Noir is actually a big SLH release for the Salinas based Tudor wines. Presented in a screw top bottle, the nose is cooked cherry. The palate gets silky smooth cherry, strawberry, and minerals. A chewy finish with moderate acid. Nothing flashy, but a very solid wine that performs well solo or matched with lighter foods. — 2 years ago
