    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is handcrafted from several unique vineyards representing the major benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley — Rutherford, St. Helena, Oakville and Calistoga. By deliberately sourcing fruit from this range of exemplary sources, the assembled wine attains the important range of expression and nuance that gives this wine its depth of character.

    The blend for the 2003 bottling consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (97%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). The wine will spend a minimum of 24 months in French oak barrels (80% new). The components are aged separately for approximately 12 months, the assemblage is then crafted and the blend is returned to barrels for an additional year of aging before bottling.

    The hallmark of this wine is the purity of the fruit aromas. Classic black cherry and currants begin the nose and lead into layers of wild berry fruit, cassis and black licorice spice. On the palate the wine is rich and lush with good structure and sweet mouth-filling tannins. An opulent Cabernet Sauvignon with powerful structure and intensity that underscores why this varietal is one of the major pursuits at Etude.
