This Pinot Noir begins with an expressive nose of violets, fresh ginger, raspberry and clove. The palate is broad with rich, mouth-filling flavors of crushed red fruit. The velvety tannins and wonderful oak integration carry through on the long finish. This young wine will continue to evolve for several more years and promises exceptional complexity and age-worthiness.
"The 2005 Pinot Noir Heirloom reveals the darkest color, the most tannin and structure, but also the deepest fruit. Offering long, rich red and blackberry, roasted herb, forest floor, and gamey notes, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, it is a seriously-endowed Pinot to drink between 2009-2014." Wine Advocate
"Bright aromas of raspberry, flowers and minerals. Concentrated and distinctly wild, with excellent depth of fruit but less obvious sweetness and pliancy than the Temblor or Deer Camp. This juicy, firmly structured pinot needs at least a couple years of bottle aging to express itself." Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar
"Youthful, atypical hue; purple to the rim. Smoky blueberry and plum aromas with a good whiff of eucalyptus. Plump, juicy flavors of black cherry and plum with a lively menthol buzz. Muscles-up in the close with youthful tannins, drying minerals and fresh acidity." Wine News

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.
Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...Read More About Sonoma County
Pinot Noir(PEE-noh nwahr)
Pinot Noir is a finicky grape. It only grows in
the right climate, with the right soils and the right care. Perhaps because
it is so difficult is why it is so loved. Pinot Noir hails from Burgundy, a region known for crafting the most collectible and sought-after wines from this varietal.
Not only does Pinot reign in Burgundy, it is also...Read More About Pinot Noir
