    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Pinot Noir begins with an expressive nose of violets, fresh ginger, raspberry and clove. The palate is broad with rich, mouth-filling flavors of crushed red fruit. The velvety tannins and wonderful oak integration carry through on the long finish. This young wine will continue to evolve for several more years and promises exceptional complexity and age-worthiness.

    90 Points

    "The 2005 Pinot Noir Heirloom reveals the darkest color, the most tannin and structure, but also the deepest fruit. Offering long, rich red and blackberry, roasted herb, forest floor, and gamey notes, good acidity, and plenty of tannin, it is a seriously-endowed Pinot to drink between 2009-2014."
    Wine Advocate

    91+ Points

    "Bright aromas of raspberry, flowers and minerals. Concentrated and distinctly wild, with excellent depth of fruit but less obvious sweetness and pliancy than the Temblor or Deer Camp. This juicy, firmly structured pinot needs at least a couple years of bottle aging to express itself." Stephen Tanzer
    International Wine Cellar

    94 Points

    "Youthful, atypical hue; purple to the rim. Smoky blueberry and plum aromas with a good whiff of eucalyptus. Plump, juicy flavors of black cherry and plum with a lively menthol buzz. Muscles-up in the close with youthful tannins, drying minerals and fresh acidity."
    Wine News

    "Having tasted the already extraordinary, richly full-bodied 2005 Etude Heirloom Carneros Pinot Noir…we're eager to re-taste it in a year to two to see how time brings out its aromatics and mellows its boldness. A wine that would be ideal for celebrating your own next big anniversary. -Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page,
