2012 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate: Etude Wines
Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America

Tasting Note:July 9,2016

Bryan opened this for us at Oakton Wine Shop at our little stop over this afternoon. Dark ruby red with purplish hues. Nose had some restrained dark berries. Definitely tight but started to open up with some more baking spices, like cinnamon. A little dirty too, like dust or dirt undertones. Slight heat on the nose. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) definitely needs some time to develop and fill out. Dark cassis and cherries with an undertone of warm spices with a little bite. Seems like the fruit on the palate is tied down. Kinda makes us want to cuddle up and watch a movie very warm and grows on you.
