Etude Pinot Gris Carneros 2009
External Reviews for Etude Pinot Gris Carneros
A beautiful Pinot Gris that defines the drier, more elegant style in California. This 2009 is entirely consistent with past vintages from Etude, which have been superior. Shows Meyer lemon, lime, vanilla and peppery spice flavors, with a long, distinguished finish. Etude hasn't raised the price in many years. Production was 3,319 cases.
Aromas of smoke, butter, orange peel and honey, with floral and herbal nuances. Dense, juicy, bright and dry. A serious, unaoked Pinot Gris of noteworthy purity and restraint. The wine's balance, texture and restrained sweetness should make it flexible at the dinner table.
