The notably cool 2011 vintage gave our Pinot Noir exceptionally bright notes of red cherry, raspberry, Santa Rosa plum and red rose. Toasty spice nuances from French oak add complexity, while supple tannins frame the flavors and carry them through the long, fruit-imbued finish. The wine's elegance and vibrant acidity complement grilled salmon, while its rich flavors stand up to grilled beef, lamb or pork and other hearty entrées. - WineryBarrel Aging -6 months90% French oak10% American oak30% new oakMedium-plus toast Alcohol - 13.2%Acidity - 6.0 g/LpH - 3.6

'The nose is redolent of dark Bing cherries, hints of black and white pepper on meat roasting in a wood oven, memories of English plum pudding steaming at Christmas, a touch of saddle leather, warm spice and tobacco at a distance. The nose continues to build and unfold with hints of violets and Portobello mushrooms, blackberries, minerals and sweet earth. It envelops the palette, almost to the point of overwhelming, then opens up to show beautiful balance and sophistication, and an elegant, glycerol texture. Explosive on the palette, it transforms midway into every red berry you've ever tasted. The finish lingers uncovering a wisp of anise, blackberry honey, and golden pastry roasting in the ovenCherry Pie.

Acacia Vineyard is located in the Napa Valley, just a short distance from the San Francisco San Pablo Bay. Acacia Vineyard's wines are influenced by the cool Pacific Ocean breezes.
