2002 Etude Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., 30 barrels, $70. · Very lovely complex aromatic profile featuring black cherries, oak char, Asian Five Spice and dark chocolate. A pleasing core of dark cherries and berries is highlighted by oak and loamy earthy. A persistent and aromatic black raspberry finish demands another sip. Perfectly proportioned with soft tannins and ample acidity. Mercy! Reviewed February 12, 2009
