The 2016 Carneros Pinot Noir opens beautifully offering layers of red-fruit aromas; Bing cherry, cranberry and sun-ripened raspberry. The aromas ring true on the silky textured palate where the juicy fruit core intermingles with baking spice, black tea and wet stone minerality. The wine offers a fine balance with perfectly ripened Pinot Noir fruit and bright ‘Los Carneros’ acidity, underpinned by the carefully selected oak barrel regiment. This is a refined and elegant style of Pinot Noir offering a graceful and long-lasting finish.

Description

Acacia takes its name from the lone Acacia tree that once stood on this Los Carneros vineyard. The tree stands tall against the cool winds from San Francisco Bay signaling the chilly conditions that give this region one of the longest growing seasons around. Cool temperatures, dense clay soils and extended hangtime on the vine all combine to yield Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of rare power and complexity. Gentle handcrafting brings out the full expression of this special terroir, for wines with layered varietal character over silky texture.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested in the early morning and then hand sorted at the winery for
optimum quality. Prior to fermentation, the berries were cold soaked for gentle flavor, color and
tannin extraction. For greater complexity, we fermented the must in open-top fermentors, using
both the native yeast on the grapes and cultured yeast selected from Burgundy, France. Gentle
punch-downs re-submerged the cap of skins for optimum extraction. Following extended
maceration and gentle basket pressing, the wine was transferred to barrels for malolactic
fermentation and barrel aging.

Vineyard

The majority of the Pinot Noir was harvested from the Winery Lake Vineyard in the windswept Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA). Additional fruit came from nearby, long-term growers. The widely diverse clones and soils found in these vineyards contribute layers of flavors and textures to the Acacia Pinot Noir.
