Seductive sun-warmed rose and forest loam nuances mingle with the red fruits, along with roasted coffee bean and vanilla notes from barrel aging. There's a hint of tangerine zest on the long, fruit-imbued finish.This wine's silky flavors, bright acidity and fine tannins make an elegant pairing with grilled salmon, wild mushroom risotto or roasted turkey and lamb.
Our Pinot Noir’s personality comes from our two Acacia estate vineyards in the windswept Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA): the picturesque Lone Tree Vineyard, on the rolling hills surrounding the winery, and Winery Lake Vineyard, just a couple of miles away. The widely diverse clones and soils found in these vineyards contribute layers of flavors and texture to our Pinot Noir. Bright, balanced acidity is retained in the grapes by the cool marine winds.
This wine is an easy match for roasted meats such as lamb. Duck sausage is also a natural for this Pinot Noir.
