Critical Acclaim

"Enormously complex, deep, dark, rich and polished, with layers of concentrated black cherry, blackberry, currant and anise. Framed by pretty toasty oak, the fruit holds a firm upper hand, turning richly tannic on the finish."
94 Points

"From a tannic vintage for Napa Cabernet, Etude's 1999 is a stunning success. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a restrained but noble bouquet of creme de cassis, vanilla, and lead pencil. This medium to full-bodied effort is elegant and concentrated with well-balanced tannin as well as extract."
94 Points

"Good full ruby. Superripe aromas of currant, mocha, brown spices and smoky oak. Lush and sweet, but almost magically light on its feet. Lively and intense, with rich flavors of currant and minerals. Finishes very long, with wonderfully fine tannins. This is more refined than 99% of California's cabernets, without any loss of flavor intensity or personality."
93 Points

"Plush tannins and spicy black fruit on the palate leaven the whipped vanilla cream, strawberry, and cocoa aromas. A beam of currant fruit shines on the full, softly tannic finish."
90 Points

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.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
