Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.4%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet in color, the 2007 Pinot Noir bottling offers inviting aromas of black cherry and frambois strawberry with hints of cardamom and clove. The palate bursts with rich fruit, cherry liquor notes, toasted oak and a distinct minerality. The concentrated fruit combined with the fine-grained tannins and lifted acidity creates a defined Pinot Noir with elegance and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; deep, complex dark cherry and herbal aromas; rich. ripe, complex black cherry flavors with earthy, forest floor notes and some toasty oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, complex Pinot with the right amount of everything to drink really nicely right now. Needs some time to develop more fully."
94 Points

"A beautiful Pinot Noir, deeply flavored and complex. It shows a silky, elegant mouthfeel, with powerful flavors of cherry and raspberry purée, mocha, Dr. Pepper and smoky sandalwood. Feels solid and impressive in texture, an important wine, and will drink well though 2014."
92 Points

"Light ruby red hue. Pretty bouquet of smoked meats, spearmint and forest floor. Round, juicy mouth-feel showcases cherry, coffee and black pepper. Spicy notes ring out in the close along with well-integrated tannins and pepper-tinged acids. "
92 Points

"Etude's outstanding trio of Pinot Noirs begins with the dark ruby/plum-hued 2007 Pinot Noir Estate, which offers plenty of sweet cherry, pomegranate, wood spice, and forest floor characteristics in its round, gracious, expansive personality. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years."

We really like this California Pinot -- it's got real delicacy too it, without being light.

I only have a glass and went back for more only to find out that my wife drank the whole bottle. This wine is very good and smooth.

Excellant for a steak and for just sipping. Full body and mild to the palate at the end. Highly recommend this wine to people that are not big on an oak flavor.

Learn About Etude Map ItMap It

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.
