2003 Etude Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 38 barrels, $70. First bottle opened was corked. · An intense wine of admirable balance with crisp acidity. Aromas of dark cherries and berries are accented by oak and barnyard. Flavors of cherry syrup, blueberries and pomegranate are plush and satisfying. A great food wine. Reviewed February 12, 2009
