2015 ETUDE “GRACE BENOIST RANCH” PINOT NOIR

$47.00 $39.99 $39.99

With around two hundred 90+ point scores under their belt, Etude is the reining King of the Carneros AVA.  Founded in 1982 by wine country icon Tony Soter, I can’t think of any other Carneros winery that defines the AVA as well as Etude, and now nearly four decades later they remain a paragon.  With all of the hallmarks that make the Carneros AVA so wondrous, you can almost smell the fog from the San Pablo Bay in their 2015 Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot.  Classic Carneros down to the core and at $39.99/btl it will put a smile on your face…

Tucked along the Northwest corner of Carneros, Etude’s Grace Benoist Ranch benefits from a strong maritime influence and rocky, volcanic soils, making it ideally suited for Pinot Noir.  A correlation of the best grapes from individual vineyard blocks on Grace Benoist Ranch, this wine always tells the story of a particular vintage from a very unique place.  The 2015 is such a good story that you won’t be able to put it down until the last page has turned.

Description

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Grace Benoist Ranch has a savory, sautéed herbs-laced nose over a core of red currants, cranberries and Bing cherries plus hints of dusty earth and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with savory/earthy flavors, framed by chewy tannins and finishing with a lot of interesting layers.” 92 Points
From Wine Enthusiast,  “Earthy and robustly expansive on the palate, this wine is full of black cherry, oak and bark elements—complementary expressions that work well within a medium-bodied context. A smoky element of forest floor lingers on the finish.” 90 Points
From Jeb Dunnuck, “… a deeply colored effort that has medium-bodied notes of red currants, cherries, campfire and forest floor. It has plenty of texture and a charming, rounded, delicious style ideal for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.” 91 points
