Etude Pinot Noir Carneros 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Pinot Noir offers up dark red fruit, game, smoke, ash and tar. Slightly angular contours are the only things that detract from the wine’s overall sense of balance." --The Wine Advocate

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

Classically structured the palate bursts with flavors of sweet frambois strawberries, red cherries and mocha. The lush fruit combined with the baking spice notes from aging in French oak creates a defined Pinot Noir with elegance and length.

Founded 25 years ago by master winemaker Tony Soter of Spottswood fame, Etude is dedicated to mastering the craft of winegrowing. According to Soter "There’s no better vehicle with which to study or practice the craft of winemaking than Pinot Noir." Working with 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 grapes into world-class wines sought out by the most discriminating wine lovers. This 2009 offers aromas of black cherry, Asian spice and a concentrated fresh fruit core. Consistent with the nose, the palate also demonstrates the qualities of a well balanced Pinot Noir: refined tannins, bright acidity, a generous mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Due to the cool conditions of 2009 vintage, this wine offers an exceptional fresh acidic structure and fruit balance, which furthers its Burgundian like qualities.

Ruby and garnet in color, this Pinot Noir offers aromas of black cherry, Asian spice and sous bois that are lifted by a concentrated fresh fruit core. Consistent with the nose, the palate also demonstrates the qualities of a well balanced Pinot Noir: refined tannins, bright acidity, a generous mouthfeel and a lingering finish.
