92pointsEtude 2010 Heirloom Estate Pinot Noir (Carneros)

Cellar Selection

This is such a massive wine, in terms not just of fruit but tannic structure, that it's not really drinkable now. It's just too much of everything. Jammy raspberries and cherries, sweet toasty oak and a generalized heavy mouthfeel make it feel like a melted candy bar. All indications point to the cellar. Give it six years or so to let it begin to mellow.
