Etude Pinot Noir Carneros 2004

Member Review by dbhonig:

Light nose with a hint of oak and vanilla. Oaky palate, with vanilla and leafy terroir. Pleasant balance, not too fruity.

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.” Laboring alongside Soter in this oenological quest for perfection are veteran winemaker Jon Priest and viticulturalist Franci Ashton. Together, this talented trio works to 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. Read less

Big but smooth, raspberry and earth; ripe acids. Totally enjoyable and very versitile for a pinot noir.

Con un color bellamente sofisticado, rojo rubi, brillante e intensamente perfumado... Frutal, amaderado, suave, delicado, redondo y elegante.

Just a fantastic Carneros Pinot. I don't know, not much more can be said.

The 2004 Pinot Noir reveals a dark plum/ruby color, sweet forest floor, pomegranate, plum, and cherry notes, medium to full body, superb integration of wood, acidity, and tannin, and an attractive, complex finish. Already drinking well, this wine sho... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Etude Pinot Noir Estate 750ml
