Reviewed this back in 2016, and wasn’t impressed, but clearly was drinking it too early. Having this at 2021 New Years, and it has evolved wonderfully. Tart black cherry, cranberry and leather , with hints of black pepper - acidity much more balanced than my tasting in 2016. Ruby red and medium bodied, it has matured nicely. If you have the 2013 hanging around, give it a try. It has more years to run, so no rush, but worthy of tasting now.

Very dry, almost acidic. Expected a lot more from this given Etude's reputation. 2013 was a tough year for Oregon Pinot - maybe the same holds true for CA.
