2013 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

94 Points- The Wine Advocate

"From the Morisoli Vineyard, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford showcases loads of sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, Asian plum sauce and blacker currants. It is full-bodied and deep with a note of tobacco leaf, powerful, opulent flavors and a long, long finish with moderate tannin. It is a 25-year wine as well." - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon was the first appellation wine to be introduced in our Cabernet series of very small bottlings dedicated to the benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley. Fruit from the Morisoli Vineyard has been an important part of the foundation of Etude’s Rutherford Cabernet since 2003, and 2009 marked the first year this celebrated vineyard served as the sole source for this wine. Currently under the watchful eye of fourth generation grower Gary Morisoli, this pioneering vineyard produces some of the most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Napa Valley. The Moisoli Vineyard is located in the heart of Rutherford on the true and acclaimed bench, where the heat from the ground helps to concentrate the intense crushed berry character that defines Rutherford Cabernet.

2013 St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

94 Points- The Wine Advocate

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena comes from a vineyard on the valley floor not far from Vineyard 29's famous Aida Vineyard. It is also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and this one offers more floral notes, cedar wood, baking spices, intense blackberry and cassis fruit, with licorice and camphor. It is dense, full-bodied, opulent and a stunner. This should drink well for 25-30 years."- Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon was the second appellation wine to be introduced in our Cabernet series of very small bottlings dedicated to the benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley. Located in the upper Napa Valley, the Schoenstein Vineyard, owned by Margaret Schoenstein and her family, serves as the single vineyard source for this wine. The vineyard sits on a pronounced alluvial fan along the Mill Creek on the north end of the St. Helena appellation. This bottling comes from a four acre vineyard of older vines where Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grow adjacent to one another.

2013 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

93+ Points- The Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville comes from Vine Hill Ranch and is a big, spicy, cedary, Pauillac-like wine with notes of baking spices, blackcurrants, licorice, forest floor, coffee and a touch of new oak in the background. This big, tannic wine needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and drunk over the following 25 or more." - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon was the third appellation wine to be introduced in our Cabernet series of very small bottlings dedicated to the benchland sub-appellations of Napa Valley. This bottling marks the sixth vintage of the Oakville Cabernet and celebrates Etude’s long-term relationship with one of the most highly regarded winegrowers in Napa Valley. Grapes were sourced exclusively from Block 6 of the Vine Hill Ranch, nestled along the hills of the Mayacamas Mountain Range at the south end of the Oakville AVA. The Phillips family has carefully managed this alluvial benchland vineyard for two generations, which is home to some of the most expressive and concentrated Cabernet grapes in the Napa Valley.
