2000 Etude Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 20 barrels. · Very dark reddish-purple color. The fruity nose initially features black raspberries and black currant fading in the glass to reveal more oak and herbs. Dark red stone fruits and berries saturate the palate with hints of mocha and leafy vegetables. Soft tannins create a smooth drinking experience that finishes with a citrus tang. Reminiscent of an aged Gevrey- Chambertain village wine from a good vintage. Reviewed February 12, 2009
