"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 Central and North Coast appellations, we founded A by Acacia in 2007. Our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay capture the unique terroir expression and exceptional balance that these varietals achieve in vineyards bathed by Pacific fog and winds. Our 2009 Pinot Noir offers lush aromas and flavors of ripe plum and dark cherry, with hints of rose and oak spices. Smooth, supple tannins frame the beautifully balanced flavors and carry them through the long, fruit-imbued finish. This Pinot Noir's rich, medium-bodied flavors pair nicely with many entrees, including prime rib, lamb, pork, roast turkey and duck. It even has the elegance and bright acidity to accompany grilled salmon."
