This is a well-structured and complex wine, with concentrated tropical fruit flavors, layers of vanilla and honey, a hint of minerals and a long, elegant finish.
When it was founded in 1979, Acacia was one of the first California wineries to establish a reputation for vineyard-designated Pinot Noir based on purchasing grapes. Starting in 1996, Acacia began acquiring sites surrounding the winery, eventually assembling a gorgeous estate vineyard. Today, from its 150-acre estate vineyard, as well as from other Carneros single vineyards, Acacia Vineyard produces richly-styled Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
It continues to honor the principle that the only true reserves are those that undeniably express a distinctive vineyard. Acacia produces single vineyard Pinot Noirs from St. Clair Vineyard, which has produced single vineyard wines since 1979, and from newer additions such as Beckstoffer and our own Estate vineyards, Lone Tree Vineyard and Winery Lake Vineyard.
