Amazing, buy! 96 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Etude's 2007 defines power and authority, Napa style. It's hard to imagine a Cabernet Sauvignon more explosive in blackberry, cherry and chocolate fruit flavor. Yet the structure is superb, with firm but ultrarefined tannins providing an architecture to house all that richness. Beautiful now, and should age gracefully for a decade."

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2001 Vintage) High in loamy, woodsy, caramelly complexities and solidly fruity in both nose and mouth, this fairly full-bodied bottling is supple and ever so slightly fleshy in palatefeel with underlying strata of ripe fruit, tannin and a dollop of finishing heat. Its solid center of fruit and good depth carries it and allows full expression of its black cherry, curranty, oaky flavors, and those attractions hold admirably in the lingering aftertaste.
