Acacia Red Blend California 2011

Member Review by Zuiko:

Nice spicy nose with some Rose blossom notes; this is a very Pinot Noir-like wine of medium weight and lightly extracted ruby color. Enjoyable wine. My rating 87.

I had the pleasure of trying this wine at Arturo's restaurant in Atlantic City, NJ. I have always found great pleasure in a nice red blend, especially those containing a decent percent of the Mouvedre variety. I absolutely loved it and it was very smooth..a great wine for someone who enjoys good red but doesn't have deep pockets for top-notch wines like Opus by Mondavi and Rothschild.

This held true for me as being a rhone style wine. Smooth to the palate, but not a whole lot going on here.

Bought a few bottles at Costco's in Houston for a dinner party where we had wild game red meats and it was great, many folks thought it was a higher priced Pinot.

The bouquet is wonderful but it does not carry through in the taste. That said, it is still a well balanced, satisfying wine for the price.

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2007 A by Acacia Red Blend. This Syrah based Rhône-style blend is well-balanced and layered with aromas of rich dark cherry, plum and raspberry. Deep, fruit flavors of cherry and ripe plum are framed by velvety tannins. Grenache adds a hint of soft, bright red raspberries and Mouvèdre infuses the blend with spice and a bit of mocha. A splash of Viognier lifts the aromas and completes this richly textured blend. - Winery
