★ 96 Points                            Etude's beautiful Napa Valley Cabernet will please any cab collector. Another classic! 96 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Etude's Cabernet 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." Etude winemaker Jon Priest sources Cabernet grapes from several unique vineyards representing the principal sub-appellations of Napa Valley. These vineyards located in Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Calistoga make essential contributions to the complexity of the Etude 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

This one took a while to open up and was significantly improved on day 2. Darker aromatics lead to a straightforward palate and a medium finish.

A big wine that needs decanting at this age. Plum, mocha, blackberry and oak. Medium tannin and acid. Well balanced.
