The Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is handcrafted with grapes from unique benchland vineyards representing the major sub-appellations of Napa Valley. The 2011 Cabernet was sourced with fruit from some of the most highly regarded winegrowers in Napa Valley -- Vine Hill Ranch in Oakville, Morisoli Vineyards in Rutherford, Meteor Vineyard in Coombsville, and Schoenstein Vineyard on the north end of St. Helena. By deliberately sourcing fruit from this group of exemplary vineyards, the assembled wine exhibits the range of Cabernet fruit flavors and textures with vitality and finesse.
