Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates the beautiful spectrum of fruit flavors that can be found in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a textbook example of why this small appellation continues to earn its reputation for classic renditions of this important Bordeaux varietal. Warm red cherry, boysenberry, plum and cassis are interwoven with notes of black licorice and graphite in a sleek but generous wine. With toasted oak flavors that include espresso and dark chocolate, this is refined and elegant, with rich, mouth coating tannins and a lasting vibrancy that bodes well for long term cellaring.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley flows from the glass with dark red fruit, sweet spices and licorice. It is a beautifully layered, sexy wine bursting with energy. The supple, easygoing style makes this approachable even today. In 2008 the blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine spent about 24 months in French oak barrels, 80% new

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
