Etude Carneros Estate Pinot Noir California Red Wine 750 mL

$44.99

The Etude Carneros Pinot Noir is a true reflection of the winery’s estate vineyard, Grace Benoist Ranch. A blend of the best grapes from individual vineyard parcels on the Ranch, this wine tells the story of a particular vintage from a very unique place.

Description

From the winery “Etude was founded on the philosophy that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in wine that is grown, not made. This remains our approach today as we continue to build the Etude legacy. Etude was established 1982, when founding winemaker Tony Soter set his sights on the cool-climate Carneros region in the pursuit of producing world class Pinot Noir.” The current winemaking team is Jon Priest and Rob Fischer who carry on Etude’s tradition of greatness

93 rating James Suckling 2019 vintage
“This is very vinous with strawberries, red apples and hints of bread dough. It’s full-bodied, very dry with fine bubbles and a subtle finish. Vertical and almost steely. A blend of 88% pinot noir and 12% chardonnay. Three years on the lees”.
