Our wines have received some major love. We rarely submit our wines for evaluation, as we make so little of the stuff. It is such a treat when the critics love Etnyre Wines just as much as friends, relatives, and the local wine scene.
The internationally influential Jeb Dunnuck had this to say:
The 2012 wines were entered into the Sunset Wine Competition:
Our 2012 Etnyre Syrah was one of 4 gold medals out of more than 100 wines. The Sunset Magazine review was glowing.
~Gold medal: Etnyre 2012 Quin’s Vineyard Syrah (San Luis Obispo County; $36) Complex cedar, sage, leather, and graphite notes join juicy blue- berries and wild raspberries in this expressive wine, which finishes crisp and long.
2012 Etnyre Pinot Noir received a silver medal.
