Etude Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Details





Wine Description

"Enormously complex, deep, dark, rich and polished, with layers of concentrated black cherry, blackberry, currant and anise. Framed by pretty toasty oak, the fruit holds a firm upper hand, turning richly tannic on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2015."-Wine Spectator

    (2002 Vintage) Rating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 120, May/June 2005. (includes about 20% co-fermented cabernet franc) Good full medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, tar, menthol and licorice. Higher-toned and higher-pitched than the estate cabernet, with flavors of blueberry, violet and minerals framed by juicy acidity. Here the firm tannins are a bit less integrated, at least in the early going.
