More About This Wine
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.
91-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999
Deep, saturated ruby. Extremely aromatic, high-pitched nose combines blackberry, boysenberry, cassis, licorice and spice. Densely packed but very tightly wrapped and unevolved. Still, this cabernet already shows a lot of personality. Finishes with substantial, chewy tannins and very persistent, subtle dark fruit flavors.
