“Black cherries, plums, mocha and dark spices are all pushed forward in Etude's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena. Exuberant, ripe and flashy, the 2012 offers notable depth and voluptuousness in a racy style that is typical of the northern corridor of St. Helena. Drink it over the next decade or so.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media.

“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena is another winner. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied, multidimensional effort reveals notes of graphite, blackcurrants, blackberries, subtle barbecue smoke and camphor. Deep, voluptuously textured and long with well-integrated wood, acidity, tannin and alcohol, it can be drunk over the next 12-15+ years.” - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
