Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros Lone Tree Vineyard 2008
This small production wine is a special selection of Winemaker Matthew Glynn’s most compelling barrels from Acacia’s cherished estate vineyard: Lone Tree. This blend includes the Swan clone – for delicacy and perfume, the Hanzel selection for aroma, depth and flavor, the Mt. Eden selection for complexity, and the Pommard clone for structure and length. The grapes were picked by hand, meticulously sorted at the winery and de-stemmed. After being vinified separately in small fermentation lots, the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 13 months. This multifaceted wine carries the delicacy and perfume of green tea, earthiness of blackberry and black cherry, and elegance of fine tannins.
