Winemaker Notes

Rich and deeply flavored, the Heirloom Pinot Noir intrigues with its spicy entry of cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise and Orange Pekoe tea, and extraordinarily concentrated dark fruit flavors. Despite the wine’s density and generous palate of red and black cherry, blackberry and plum, it shows elegance and balance. With silky tannins and delicate oak notes of clove and toasted almond that support but never override, this Pinot Noir will develop further complexities and age gracefully for years to come.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Far more compelling that the Temblor is the lovely, sexy 2012 Pinot Noir Estate Heirloom. A dark plum/garnet color is followed by sweet berry fruit intermixed with damp earth, tobacco leaf and forest floor notes. It is a lush, heady, delicious, medium-bodied Pinot Noir to enjoy over the next 4-5 years.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Heirloom vines contribute to this aptly named Pinot, with a sizable expression of vibrant black cherry and cinnamon, accented in truffle-like earth. Concentrated and cradled in oak, it represents the powerful side of the variety, buoyed by enough acidity to keep it fresh in the glass.

Etude Winery Video

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.

Carneros Wine

California

View all products

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.
