Enormously complex, deep, dark, rich and polished, with layers of concentrated black cherry, blackberry, currant and anise. Framed by pretty toasty oak, the fruit holds a firm upper hand, turning richly tannic on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2015.
From a tannic vintage for Napa Cabernet, Etude’s 1999 is a stunning success. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a restrained but noble bouquet of creme de cassis, vanilla, and lead pencil. This medium to full-bodied effort is elegant and concentrated with well-balanced tannin as well as extract. (RP)
Good full ruby. Superripe aromas of currant, mocha, brown spices and smoky oak. Lush and sweet, but almost magically light on its feet. Lively and intense, with rich flavors of currant and minerals. Finishes very long, with wonderfully fine tannins. This is more refined than 99% of California's cabernets, without any loss of flavor intensity or personality.
Plush tannins and spicy black fruit on the palate leaven the whipped vanilla cream, strawberry, and cocoa aromas. A beam of currant fruit shines on the full, softly tannic finish.
