2006 Etude Temblor Carneros Estate Grown Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 495 cases, $60. This site in the Etude Estate Vineyard is on a gradual slope that faces east and is influenced by the Petaluma Gap daily intrusion of fog. · The scents of wild berries, candy cane, allspice and truffle are long and persistent. A panoply of red fruits, particularly cherries and berries, are demure yet very satisfying. Vibrant acidity provides a juiciness and the pillowy tannins create a velvety texture. Impeccably balanced and a perfect example of why Pinot is my paramour. Reviewed February 12, 2009
