Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

Ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, tar, lead pencil, eucalyptus and a whiff of band-aid on the nose. Cooler and less dense than the St. Helena example, with a stronger mint and herbal component, along with a flavor of bitter chocolate. Here, too, the tannins are a bit youthfully tough. This is from a blend of 40- and 60-year-old vines, according to Soter.

About This Producer


Etude was established in 1982 by wine consultant Tony Soter to produce high quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir sourced from top growers. The brand embarked on an estate-focused philosophy in 1999 with the purchase of a former pasture at the base of Sonoma Mountain. The sustainably-produced wines include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and five estate-grown Pinot Noirs. Additionally, their appellation-focused Cabernet Sauvignon program offers selections from St. Helena, Oakville and Rutherford, as well as a Napa Valley bottling. Winemaker is Jon Priest.
