The Etude Carneros Pinot Noir is a true reflection of the winery’s estate vineyard, Grace Benoist Ranch. A blend of the best grapes from individual vineyard parcels on the Ranch, this wine tells the story of a particular vintage from a very unique place.
“Dried strawberries with spices, such as cloves and peppercorns, as well as some dried flowers. Medium to full body with a pretty core of ripe pinot, fine and linear tannins and a long, fresh finish. Needs time to open, but vibrant and attractive now. Drink after 2023.” - James Suckling, August 2021
“This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir opens with a blackberry, black raspberry and black tea bouquet with a hint of teaberry gum. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. It is also bright, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and clove blend with notes of black plum and licorice. I also detected hints of oolong tea and loamy earth mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins, acidity and flavors are nicely extended. This Pinot would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy.” - James Molesworth, August 2021
For more than a decade Jon has fashioned Etude wines with a simple creed. Inspired winegrowing diminishes the need for a winemaker to intervene in the cellar. Whether sourcing from the estate Grace Benoist Ranch in Sonoma's Los Carneros, or vineyards like Fiddlestix and North Canyon in famed growing regions of California's Central Coast, his focus is on coaxing the very best from the vineyard. It shows in every glass of Etude.
