    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Deer Camp Pinot Noir is named for an old deer camp structure that stands at the base of the vineyard. The parcel is so unique that we consider it to be a "vineyard within a vineyard." The Deer Camp vineyard is the western facing slope of two vineyards we collectively refer to as the "Pinot Bowl." It overlooks Rodgers Creek Fault, just a stone's throw away. The soil series on the western slope is Kidd Stony Loam, a rocky, well-drained soil that contributes to the small size of the vines. The expressions from this site include dark fruits, overt structure and balanced acidity.

    Saturated boysenberry and blueberry aromas mingle with hints of truffle and creamy oak spice on the nose of the 2007 Deer Camp Pinot Noir. The wine has a sweet, dense fruit entry that leads to a juicy palate filled with ripe plum and boysenberry confiture. The finish is long with hints of orange zest and sweet spice. This is a powerful and serious Pinot Noir with great depth of fruit, supple tannins and vitality.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This has been one of Etude's best bottlings, and 2007 was a great year. If you enjoy sheer, decadent deliciousness in your Pinot Noirs, this is one for you. The palate first is struck by the rich waves of cherry pie filling, raspberry essence and sweet, vanilla-tinged, smoky oak. Then it discovers the soft silkiness, and finally the firm, fine tannins kick in, providing structure. Just beguiling, and should develop in the bottle over the next 5–6 years.

    The richest effort is the 2007 Pinot Noir Deer Camp. Lots of minerality buttresses the wine’s full-bodied, black cherry, cranberry, and strawberry flavors. It possesses excellent texture, power, depth, and richness as well as moderate tannin. One to two years of cellaring is warranted, and it should evolve for at least a decade.
