This wine is a masterpiece of taste, boasting a grandeur that awakens the senses with layers of lush dark berry fruit aromas.

The 2017 vintage in Napa Valley was marked by its smaller yields, a gift that came hand in hand with exceptional quality. Winter rain brought relief from drought, and though the harvest was at times unpredictable due to a short burst of warmer temperatures, the result was nothing short of exceptional. The wines from this vintage, including our 2017 Etude Napa Valley Cabernet, bear witness to this unique interplay of conditions – exceptional flavor intensity, highly saturated color, and layers of complexity.
Experience the magnificence upon release or let it mature gracefully for years to come. This wine is a testament to time, craftsmanship, and the undeniable beauty of Napa Valley's terroir. Indulge in the allure of the 2017 vintage – a wine that encapsulates both elegance and depth in every sip.
Hints of cedar and oak spice twirl gracefully on the palate, offering a nod to the meticulous integration of oak. These flavors are embraced by velvety-rich tannins and an unctuous structure that exudes warmth and richness. This Cabernet Sauvignon isn't just a wine; it's an invitation to a world of opulence and depth, a true testament to the art of winemaking.
