I find the nose between Carneros and Santa Barbara with a light cherry cola and slight herbaceous note. For an inexpensive wine, it has medium grip and sufficient acidity to be pleasant. No wow but drinkable.

A value priced Pinot from Étude? Say what! Lovely aroma, great mouthfeel. The fruit is a little warmer than I would prefer, but over all it's very balanced. A touch of alcohol. But for under 20.00, amazing.

Second label from Etude. Starting to show some great Santa Barbara Pinot characteristics. Fiddlestix and North Canyon Vineyard fruit. 100% Pinit Noir. Restaurant only but you may be able to find it in some independent bottle shops.

Nice expression of PN. A little funky a little Dr. Pepper. Wish it was a whiff cheaper.

Not sophisticated wine drinker, but prefer Pinot noir's, and really like the Lyric over much more expensive wines I have in wine locker at club, but will add this for me!
