Description

Temblor offers a signature expression of Grace Benoist Ranch, showing the cooling influences of nearby San Pablo Bay. The grapes for the Etude Carneros Pinot Noir wine were harvested at night to preserve freshness and integrity. They were placed in open-top fermenters for 3-5 days of cold maceration followed by fermentation. A small percentage of the grapes were left as whole cluster to preserve the buoyancy of aromatics of the fruit and to add structure and refinement to the wine. We lightly pressed the wine into small French oak barrels (25% new) where it rested for 14 months. The wine was bottled with no fining or filtration and allowed to rest for another eight months prior to release.

Tasting Notes

  • Palate
    Vibrant acidity, elegant, silky tannins and a delicate but quite demonstrative mouthfeel.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Red wine.
  • Nose Nose
    Aromas and flavors of rich red fruit offer layers that reveal themselves with patience in the glass. Hints of red peppercorn and light touches of oak spice round out the profile.

Sommelier Review

“An outstanding value in high quality wine. The Pinot Noir Estate is made primarily from Dijon clones. Its dark ruby color is followed by sweet notes of red apple skins, plums, forest floor and red as well as black cherries. Generously endowed with good acidity and freshness, this medium to full-bodied Pinot should drink nicely for 4-5 years.”
