Winemaker Notes

The Heirloom Pinot Noir stands apart for its aromatic complexity, underlying structure, persistence and finesse. Rich in lush red fruit, star anise, graham cracker spices, and Orange Pekoe tea, the 2014 is alluring and ample with silky, refined tannins and notable length. Cellaring promises even greater complexity and, over time, this powerful Pinot Noir will only continue to integrate and improve.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The outstanding potential of the 2014 Pinot Noir Heirloom Grace Benoist Ranch Estate is obvious. This sees about 25% new oak, but it is beautiful with black cherry fruit intermixed with forest floor, a floral note and some loamy soil notes. This is an impressive Pinot Noir that should drink well for up to a decade or more. I also tasted two wines from Central Coast.

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.

As early as the 1970s Carneros became known as a source of terrific Pinot Noir, and was one of the first California regions to gain such a reputation. The combination of sunny days, cooling fog and thin clay soils are tailor-made for the variety. Another factor in Pinot Noir’s prominent place here is vintners’ willingness to experiment widely. The history of the grape in Carneros is marked by continuous research into clonal variations, viticultural techniques and site selection. Careful evaluation over time has revealed a signature flavor profile as well. Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, red berry, spice, earth and cola appear time and again in Carneros Pinot Noir. To this day the appellation remains one of California’s standard bearers for the variety.
