    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates the beautiful spectrum of fruit flavors that can be found in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a textbook example of why this small appellation continues to earn its reputation for classic renditions of this important Bordeaux varietal. Warm red cherry, boysenberry, plum and cassis are interwoven with notes of black licorice and graphite in a sleek but generous wine. With toasted oak flavors that include espresso and dark chocolate, this is refined and elegant, with rich, mouth coating tannins and a lasting vibrancy that bodes well for long term cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley flows from the glass with dark red fruit, sweet spices and licorice. It is a beautifully layered, sexy wine bursting with energy. The supple, easygoing style makes this approachable even today. In 2008 the blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine spent about 24 months in French oak barrels, 80% new

    Full, saturated ruby. Cassis, menthol, licorice and minerals on the slightly medicinal nose and palate. Creamy, ripe and pliant but not at all heavy; lovely round, mouthfilling wine with good verve. Finishes with big but smooth tannins and good length. This has the balance to offer early pleasure.
