Our 2006 Acacia Lone Tree Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir comes from our crown jewel Pinot Noir site in the Los Carneros region. We've planted the vineyard to a diverse selection of Pinot Noir clones, giving this deep, ruby-purple wine its layers of luscious flavors. The aromas and flavors express lush back cherry, dark plum and blackberry character, with hints of rose, earth and truffle. Beautifully integrated vanilla and toasted oak nuances add complexity, while the balanced acidity and fine-grained tannins structure the wine. The finish lingers with delicious notes of plum and chocolate. Enjoy this elegant wine with grilled salmon or swordfish, wild mushroom risotto and herb-roasted chicken, pork, lamb or duck.
"A cool, reserved, pure and elegant nose of primary red berry fruit with a very subtle hint of vegetal aromas merges into detailed, elegant, precise and relatively linear flavors that offer good depth and intensity on the persistent and solidly complex finish. This is fashioned in a classic style and while there is a hint of backend warmth, it's relatively minor and this is really quite lovely. Worth a look."
