  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($40) Good bright red. Nose offers a complex blend of raspberry, chocolate, baking spices and game; much more than just fruit. Then silky and complex in the mouth, with excellent breadth of texture and an intriguing sweet, smoky quality. Lush and long, finishing with fine-grained tannins. I can't recall a better vintage for this label.

    Supple texture that lets the core of cola and blackberry-scented fruit slide on through. The tannins perk up on the finish, along with a touch of heat.

  • 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.
