Food Pairings for Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros
Paid 9.99 @costco
Really nice cherry-compote flavors, sweet but with a bit of acidity. Heavy, ripe fruits with lingering oak.
Very smooth. Light fruit.
Velvety nose with hints of aged, rainforest vanilla and rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied, with exceptional notes of raspberry and blackberry. Other dark fruits, including date and plum are additionally evident. Upon the finish, one will most certainly find lingering notes of licorice and cocoa. This wine complements red meat and game with superb ease. Enjoy with roasted wood duck, green-winged teal, or gadwall.
smooth, fruity, fresh
External Reviews for Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros
Started over three decades ago, Acacia is a winery that helped to establish the Carneros region as one of the very best in California for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Acacia produced one of the first Pinot Noirs from the legendary Winery Lake Vineyard and today sources a large portion of the grapes for this wine from Winery Lake. The other main source is their own Lone Tree Vineyard that surrounds the winery. (The "Lone Tree" is the acacia tree that gives the winery its name.) Grapes are hand sorted in bunches and then sorted again after de-stemming to insure that the only the best fruit is utilized. After a sort cold soak fermentation is started with all native yeast. Open top fermenters are used with gentle punch downs over an extended maceration. The wine is racked into primarily French oak barrels and aged for 7 months. Beautifully perfumed with bing cherry, strawberry and vanilla, the wine shows a supple but well-composed texture with flavors of black plum, black tea, cherry, raspberry, cherry and toast. A fine display, not only of Carneros character but of the quality and breeding this winery continues to produce. On Sale!
A lovely ruby red in color, the Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir offers deep, fragrant aromas of violets, black cherries, toasty oak and earth.
Dry, earthy, herbal and dried currant and berry flavors fail to stand up to the drier leathery flavors.
Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir exhibits seductive rose, teaberry and Satsuma plum aromas. Intriguingly layered red- and black-fruit flavors, complemented by delicate spice notes and buttressed by silky tannins, stay harmonious through the lingering finish.
Winemaker's Notes:Since 1979, Acacia Vineyard has handcrafted Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines from Napa Valley’s famous Los Carneros region. Intrigued by other cool-climate sites in California’s Cent
Winemaker Notes - The 2009 Carneros Pinot Noir is rife with ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry aromas. A perfume of roses adds delicate flower nuances while some oak influence leaves notes of nuttiness. The tart acidity on the palate nicely balances out the medium body and fine tannins, and leaves the mouth with a bright raspberry flourish of a finish.
Pretty full-bodied and rich for a Pinot, and dark, too. The flavors veer toward black cherries, coffee and spice, and are very dry. Fortunately itrsquo;s a silky wine, with zesty acids. Drink now with rich fare, like pork tenderloin.
