About Etude Wines
Tony Soter, who now makes excellent Pinot Noir in Oregon under his Soter Vineyards label, laid the groundwork at Etude before selling it to the Beringer-Blass conglomerate. Current winemaker, Jon Priest, continues to make velvety, suave, immediately enjoyable Pinots that are characterized by red fruits, spices, forest floor scents and particularly fine-grained tannins.

Bright, pale yellow. Lemon peel, flowers and a hint of crushed stone on the perfumed nose. Then a bit subdued in the mouth, with a slightly edgy quality to the peach, citrus fruit and lichee flavors. Nicely tactile but a bit dry and polite for my taste. Finishes with a citric firmness.
