This one is easy: 1 hour decant or 2 hours open in bottle = GC, and yes by GC I mean Gevrey-Chambertin! Minerals, truffly earth, with power and elegance. The red cherry and strawberry fruit with the aforementioned flavors and aromas are all the supporting cast of a wondefully complex and lively marture California Pinot. Cheers to the Etude folks, formerly Soter as this was one of his last wines! Many California Pinot wish they could have this elegance, complexity and savoir-faire at this age! What a way to have the last bottle!

Thanksgiving dinner, 2007. Excellent. Very good finish. Full but not overpowering. Great match with the turkey and stuffing. Excellent bottle.

The "Heirloom" is Etude?s top of the line Pinot Noir and it is priced accordingly. Quite dark for a Pinot with strong but rustic aromas of root beer, cola, cherry and sassafras. A bit heavy in the mouth ? the wine is too low in acid. Still, it has good structure with moderate to heavy tannin.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
