Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750ml

The Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is handcrafted with grapes from unique benchland vineyards representing the major sub-appellations of Napa Valley. Sure to continue gaining complexity and revealing additional character with age, the wine is suitable for immediate enjoyment or cellaring for another two decades.

Tasting Notes

A bold and complex Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is big and plush with voluptuous layers of ripe dark berry fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry, black currant, cassis and raspberry pie, alongside baking spice notes of cardamom, clove and nutmeg. Hints of cedar and oak spice dance on the palate (a hint at the well-integrated oak) and are enveloped by the velvety-rich tannins and unctuous structure. This Cabernet is warm and inviting with tremendous depth and concentration. Beautifully drinking upon release and will age for many years to come.

Vintage

Overall, 2017 proved to be a slightly smaller yielding vintage but one of exceptional quality. A brief period of warm weather occurred during Labor Day weekend which accelerated the harvest in some areas. Temperatures subsided just when we needed and the fruit was allowed to mature and ripen perfectly on the vines before harvest officially began. Overall, a quick and intense harvest, with althea fruit picked within two to three weeks, but the quality of the vintage shows great flavor intensity, perfect ripening and maturity, lovely balance and complexity.

Critical Acclaim

94 Points/Jamescukling.com
A ripe, flavorful cabernet, showing layers of ripe, round fruit with currant, blackberry and chocolate character. It’s full and layered with so much going on. Nice, balanced finish for the richness in this wine. Needs three or four years to come around.

 

92 Points/Vinous
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is terrific. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, sweet spice and licorice are front and center in this succulent, juicy Cabernet from Etude. The Napa Valley Cabernet is a stand out in its peer group.

93 Points/Wine Spectator
Packed with juicy black currant, plum and blackberry compote flavors that pump along the graphite-edged grip and a dark tobacco backdrop. Frankly toasted on the finish, but with ample fruit for balance. A serious Cab. Best from 2022 through 2034.
