The new release of Etude's Estate Pinot Noir! Tony Soter is one of Napa Valley's groundbreaking winemakers known for consistently transforming the finest Carneros and Napa Valley grapes into world-class wines sought out by the most discriminating wine lovers. The Etude Carneros Pinot Noir will satisfy any "Burgundian" urge and yet be proud of its California roots. A must for all Pinotphiles! The impressive, dense ruby-colored Etude Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir Carneros offers aromas of black cherries, smoke, earth, and toast. This round wine is generously constituted, with enough acidity to provide definition as well as soft tannin. Delicious now, it should evolve nicely for 4-5 years.
