Winemaker's Notes:

Named for an old deer camp structure that stands at the base, this steep vineyard is a west facing slope with very rocky volcanic soil, resulting in low vigor vines. The wines produced are of great structure & richness with mouth-coating tannins, layers of dark fruit & a supple lingering finish of cherry & spice.

About Etude Wines:

The underlying philosophy at Etude Wines is that winemaking begins in the vineyard, long before the grapes are harvested. Winemaker, Jon Priest, believes that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker and results in a wine that is grown, not made. Etude specializes in two classic red varieties: Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Though modeled on the best from Burgundy to Bordeaux, these wines speak clearly of their contemporary California origins, combining rich, ripe fruit with an elegant and opulent mouth feel.
