Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Acacia Vineyard's 2013 Pinot Noir, from the Carneros region, is 100% Pinot Noir that was hand harvested and aged in a combination of French oak and Hungarian oak. With aromas of cherry, plum, spice and vanilla, good structure and fine tannins, this California red pairs well with salmon, chicken, pork, lamb, wild mushrooms and truffle dishes.

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. This 2013 is a Platinum award winner with a 95 point score in the 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition. They said "Acacia is one of the wineries that helped write the book on Pinot Noir in California, planting vines in the Carneros district at the southern tip of the Napa Valley more than three decades ago. This historic property hasn't lost its touch and the 2013 is all the evidence anyone might need. This is an intense, rich, juicy mouthful of Pinot that would be competitive with other California Pinots at twice the price." On Sale!
