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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2002
Medium amber-edged red. Intriguing aromas of spice cake, dried herbs, fresh tobacco and spearmint. Supple and chewy, with strong but not tart acidity giving the fairly deep flavors delineation and verve. Finishes with ripe tannins and decent length.
