Classic pinot noir "tells": cherry, spice box, rose petals. I'm not sure if Carneros fruit is added in to this pinot, but it seems like it; same earthy quality. Get California pinot for everyday driniking.

Fruity buttery California Pinot. Well balanced with a thick feeling.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. On the positive side of its tally sheet, this very ripe wine counts a full measure of fruit and plenty of sweet oak, but it also shows a distinctly fumey edge in the nose, and its flavors are slowly overtaken by souring sharpness that in the end leaves it short of the mark.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Our 2008 Pinot Noir opens with fragrant rose petal and toasted oak aromas lifted by bright cherry and ripe plum. Across the palate, the tantalizing cherry-berry flavors continue, balanced by good acidity and round, well-integrated tannins. The supple texture and smooth, approachable style pair well with a variety of foods, such as roasted pork tenderloin or stuffed guinea hen. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

At Acacia, we have an intimate relationship with Pinot Noir. Even after more than 25 years of experience, we remain intrigued and enticed by this ethereal grape. A by Acacia brings to life Pinot Noir's subtleties by blending grapes from California's finest Pinot Noir growing regions. The result is an elegant wine with strong black cherry flavors and an unexpected hint of violet and spice that we believe conveys the essence of California Pinot Noir.
