Colors very light red, almost a tad too watery. Nose of strawberry, other red fruits. Taste is pleasant. Winemaker withstood the California temptation to overwood the wine. No strong tannins. Finish a bit short. A nice wine all in all, drink young.

Acacia winemaking starts in the vineyards well before harvest, with meticulous pruning, careful canopy and cluster management, cover crops between the vine rows, and constant monitoring of both soil moisture and grape development. Harvest begins only when Matthew and his staff are satisfied the grapes have reached maturity, with the proper balance of flavor and acidity.

Our 2010 Pinot Noir displays seductive aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry and plum. Nuances of rose petal and new leather-with a racy hint of smokiness from oak aging-entice you to take another sip. Supple tannins frame the lush flavors and carry them through the long, fruit-imbued finish. The wine's elegance and bright acidity complement grilled salmon, while its rich flavors stand up to grilled or roasted beef, lamb, pork, turkey or duck. An aromatic spice rub on the meat brings out the spiciness of our Pinot Noir. - WineryVarietal Composition: Pinot NoirHarvest Date: Mid-SeptemberOak Regime: 6 months90% French oak10% American oak30% new oakMedium-plus toastAppellation - CaliforniaAlcohol - 13.5%Acidity - 6.03 g/LpH - 3.64Ageablity - 2011 to 2015
