11 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (2005)
Comments: Another one of my favorites when visiting the winery. This exemplifies the Rutherford dust experienced in numerous Napa Valley wines mixed in with the red and dark berries on the nose. A combination of dark and red fruits on the palate, full in body, amazing complexity, concentrated dark flavors and textural. The Rutherford dust lingers on the finish providing great character, a multi dimensional wine with a long enjoyable finish.
