Etude has been dedicated to sustainably growing and handcrafting Cabernet Sauvignon for more than 35 years. This 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from two storied vineyards in Napa Valley’s west bench. The well-draining alluvial soils from these vineyards deliver a range of expression and nuance that gives this wine a depth of character. Crafted with minimal winemaking intervention and aged in French oak for 20 months, the 2016 vintage is rich and full-bodied offering a lush bouquet of black fruit with nuances of cedar, cocoa and spearmint. This wine shows structural integrity and a focused fine-grained texture that suggest elegant aging potential.
