Etude "Lyric" Pinot Noir, 2015

21.00

Etude was founded on the philosophy that winemaking begins in the vineyard long before the harvest and that superior grape growing diminishes the need for intervention by the winemaker, resulting in wine that is grown, not made. Etude Wines is dedicated to the study of the craft of winegrowing. In classical music, an etude is a composition with a technical focus that allows the musician to practice a particular technique. Similarly, Etude wines are the product of deliberate concentration on the instructive variables of the craft. The end game is not edification alone, but rather the wine itself as a source of enjoyment. Founded in 1982 by Tony Soter, Etude Wines is known for its 36 year legacy of high quality Pinot Noirs that deliver the best of the old and new world style and winemaking techniques. At the winery, solar panels supply about a third of Etude’s energy needs, recycled water is used for landscape irrigation and employees manage a composting and recycling program which diverts a large percentage of waste away from landfills. The Etude team also takes pride in their employee cultivated garden, with a portion of the produce donated to the Napa Food Bank. This wine shows classic flavors of ripe black fruit, with brambly undernotes and precise acidity. Crushed blackberries along with delicate Earl Grey tea notes give way to a mineral-rich and lengthy finish.
