The Grace Benoist Ranch, home to the Etude Estate Vineyards, lies in the Coast Ranges of California – young mountains thrust up by forces of colliding crustal plates. These forces are also the origin of the San Andreas Fault System and its parallel components, including the Rogers Creek Fault that runs a few hundred feet west of the Ranch.
94 James Suckling
Dried strawberries with spices, such as cloves and peppercorns, as well as some dried flowers. Medium to full body with a pretty core of ripe pinot, fine and linear tannins and a long, fresh finish. Needs time to open, but vibrant and attractive now. Drink after 2023.
The 2019 Pinot Noir Grace Benoist Ranch is brawny, deep and full of explosive energy. Expressive floral and savory overtones play off a core of succulent dark fruit. Blueberry, sage, lavender and licorice are all kicked up in this complex, extroverted Carneros Pinot.
91 Wine Spectator
Fine-textured and minerally, offering dried berry and cherry flavors that show a light toastiness, with loam and sanguine accents on the long, richly spiced finish. Drink now through 2024.
90 Wine Enthusiast
Sweet, succulent strawberry opens the gate to a viscous, textured midpalate of juicy acidity and lasting freshness in this wine which has plenty of meat on its bones.
