Good value. Acacia is close to achieving the same buttery notes from the crops in the late nineties. Read more

A fine wine for the money. Nice tropical fruit flavors, along with pear, a nice minerally core, and spice notes. While not a wine to "wow" you, you could do far worse than this for everyday drinking. More in line with the California Chardonnay style than the Burgundian.

Acacia Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay Carneros 2007 $26 (not what the title says). Anther overoaked Chardonnay from CA. A creamy oak with some pleasant light toast. There is just too much of it. It seems young. Maybe a few days in the frig, it will open up, but I doubt it. If you like in your face creamy oak monsters, this is the wine for you.

Nose consisted of pear and make up. Awkward finish. Total pass.

Winemakers notes: We've been making Chardonnay at Acacia for over 25 years, and we believe that great wine comes with experience. One thing we've learned over the years is that wine in its purest form expresses a sense of place. A by Acacia blends the virtues of California's great Chardonnay wine growing regions to create a balanced wine with aromas of pear and toast and rich, vibrant flavors of apples and tropical fruits.

Winemaker Notes - Swirling our 2009 Chardonnay Carneros in the glass releases vivid White Lady peach, green apple, white flower and honeycomb aromas. Every sip reveals layers of baked apple and pear, green apple, white peach and hazelnut flavors that expand across the palate. Notes of hazelnut and toasted oak come from barrel fermentation, while sur lie aging adds weight to the luscious texture. This wine s bright, balanced acidity makes it ideal for pairing with white meats; seafood and freshwater fish; and creamy soups, pasta or risotto.

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. While Acacia still makes some wines of intent and purpose, this very dull, slightly bitter-edged effort is not among them, and its distant, vaguely varietal, background fruit searches for both focus and vitality alike.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
