RATINGS:??¨93+pts Robert Parker

What began twenty five 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 mastering the 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. Chopin piano etudes are notoriously difficult but sublimely beautiful this is an example of the practicing craft transformed to art. Founder and self described winegrower Tony Soter puts it this way: "There's no better vehicle with which to study or practice the craft of winemaking than Pinot Noir. It is the most challenging, unforgiving and quixotic of all wine grapes, and yet the most delicate and transparent." "Make no mistake it is a humbling pursuit, but when it's right, Pinot Noir is a glorious and moving thing. It is in the pursuit of that experience that we all work." Working together in this oenological quest for perfection are current winemaker Jon Priest and viticulturalist Franci Ashton. 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.

TASTING NOTES:??¨Exuberant and rich, the 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet exhibits nuanced dark, brooding fruits of blackberry, black cherry and black raspberry. A light, fresh acidity highlights undertones of fine structure and complexity. A quintessential depiction of Napa Valley Cabernet, this vintage shepherds in a solid depth, complete with a weighty and elegant finish.
