    ($42; just bottled) Medium red. Pure strawberry and raspberry aromas. Supple and fairly rich, with red fruit flavors complicated by spices, leather, earth and smoke. The pliant finish features sweet tannins. This boasts very good fruit but comes across as a tad lower-toned than some recent vintage, with more secondary aromas.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Estate reveals the softest texture, medium body, straightforward flavors, and a crisp finish offering plenty of black cherry and raspberry characteristics.

    My brother-in-law served this with a filet mignon dinner. It had an awesome bouquet of very funky barnyard, raspberry, strawberry and baking spice aromas. The palate was extremely smooth and elegant with raspberry, cherry and spice flavors...truly exceptional!

    Was not rich enough for its price.

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.
