  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    Bright medium cherry-red. Aromas of raspberry, cola and licorice, plus a whiff of stewed fruits and earth. Broad, fat and sweet on the palate, showing some superripeness but also good freshness to the flavors of raspberry, sassafras and earth. Nicely silky and welcoming but I'd like to have seen a bit more verve from this perennial restaurant-list favorite. (A second bottle, which I rated 87, showed a strong mocha, underbrush and woodsmoke character and less in the way of bright fruit.)

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.
