Etude 2018 Pinot Noir Grace Benoist Ranch Vineyard Carneros


This Pinot Noir is typical to Etude’s characteristic style— full bodied, tannic and deliciously extracted with black raspberry, cranberry, orange zest and oak flavors.... has a softly rich, drink-me-now appeal.

"A well-made, larger production offering, this wine is richly layered in strawberry, raspberry and black tea, the oak slightly sweet and toasty. Smoky overtones provide a hint of game and earth, leading to a cohesive, resolved finish. " Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

"The 2018 Pinot Noir Grace Benoist Ranch captures all the personality of this site in its wild character. Sweet red cherry, dried herbs, game, licorice, iron and soil-driven tones all run through the 2018. Medium in body, yet quite potent, the 2018 has plenty to offer." Antonio Galloni 90 Points

"The 2018 Pinot Noir Grace Benoist Ranch was aged for 12 months in French oak, 25% new. Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, is delivers notes of wild fungi, forest floor and dried Provence herbs with a core of kirsch, warm raspberries and rhubarb pie. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and refreshing, offering a light chewiness from the the tannins and an herbal lift on the finish." Robert Parker 89 Points
