Wine maker notes
We hand harvested the clusters in the early morningand then hand sorted the fruit twice at the winery—first as clusters and then as destemmed berries—for optimum quality. Prior to fermentation, the berries were cold soaked for gentle flavor, color and tannin extraction. Matthew fermented the must in open-top fermentors, using native yeast for greater complexity and gentle punch-downs to re-submerge the cap of skins Following extended maceration and gentle basket pressing, the wine was transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation and barrel aging.

Food pairing
This Pinot Noir is equally delicious with salmon, chicken, pork, veal or lamb. It’s especially fabulous with wild mushrooms.

Producer
Acacia has always taken an idealistic view. It comes from our unshakable faith in the tremendous potential of the windy hillsides of Carneros, overlooking San Pablo Bay. Long before the climate of this American Viticultural Area (AVA) was recognized as ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Acacia’s pioneering founders were convinced of it. Their goal when they launched Acacia was to achieve a certain balance in Pinot Noir that, at the time, existed only in French wines. They wanted to make a single-vineyard California Pinot Noir that was both complex and delicate—a wine that heightened the enjoyment of food, making everything a little more delicious. Today, that quality is what draws aficionados and novices alike to Acacia wines. It’s what has helped put Carneros on the map. And it’s what continues to inspire winemaking at Acacia after more than 30 years, from the ferocious belief in the possibility of this place to the artistry of capturing its essence in a glass.
