Winemaker Notes

The Heirloom 2008 in the glass reveals a dark ruby hue with a deep saturation and vibrancy. Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruit are complimented by spicebox components of cardamom, gingerbread, nutmeg and a hint of licorice. Flavors of concentrated and focused dark berry fruit are lifted by vibrant acidity and youthful notes, which build dimension and complexity with bottle age. Additionally, fine, plush tannins and minerality make this a hallmark vintage of Heirloom.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Heirloom was bottled with no fining or filtration (as were most of its siblings). Made from old Pinot Noir selections (hence the name), it displays a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet aromas of blueberries, boysenberries, blackberries, forest flora and Asian spices. This full-bodied, lush, complete Pinot should drink nicely for 7-10 years.

What began thirty years ago as a philosophical state of mind is now a state-of-the-art winemaking facility where the ancient art of winemaking is pursued with a singular passion.

Etude Wines is dedicated to the study of craft of winegrowing. In classical music, an etude is a composition with a technical focus that allows the musician to practice a particular technique. Similarly, Etude wines are the product of deliberate concentration on the instructive variables of the craft. The end game is not edification alone, but rather the wine itself as a source of enjoyment.

Working together in this oenological quest for perfection are current winemaker Jon Priest and Ast. Winemaker Rob Fischer. They transform the very finest Carneros and Napa Valley grapes into world-class wines sought out by the most discriminating wine lovers. In addition to its widely acclaimed Carneros Pinot Noir and legendary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Etude has also developed a loyal following for Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Merlot and Pinots from the most sought after AVAs around the world.

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
