Winemaker Notes

Named for an old deer camp structure that stands at the base, this steep vineyard is a west facing slope with very rocky volcanic soil, resulting in low vigor vines. The wines produced are of great structure & richness with mouth-coating tannins, layers of dark fruit & a supple lingering finish of cherry & spice.

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Good bright, full red. Good energy to the rather Burgundian aromas of spices, underbrush and game. The most precise and lively of these 2006 pinots in the mouth, displaying delicate, tangy wild strawberry and cherry flavors complicated by spices and flowers. Supple in the middle palate but nicely firm on the back end.

The underlying philosophy at Etude Wines is that winemaking begins in the vineyard, long before the grapes are harvested. Winemaker, Jon Priest, believes that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in authentic varietal expression.
