Winemaker's Notes:

Made with Pinot Noir grapes -- the variety for which Etude is justly known – this is a bold, flavorful Rose, brimming with notes of dried cranberries, fresh cherries and a touch of orange peel. Juicy and well-structured, the wine fills the mouth with similar fresh, fruit flavors, with hints of honeydew melon and light brown spice. The wine's brightness and natural acidity make it an excellent partner for all kinds of food, including spicy seafood paellas, Indian or Thai red curry dishes or lobster rolls with potato chips.

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.
