Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for the 2005 A by Acacia Pinot Noir was harvested at night and in the early morning to guard the aroma and flavors of the grapes. The grapes were received at the winery and were crushed and de-stemmed prior to fermentation. A combination of oak barrel toasting levels was used to create the classic Acacia style.

This wine offers aromas of violets, spice and black cherry with hints of vanilla. The medium-bodied palate includes rich flavors of dark fruits – plum, black cherry. The mid-palate presents dark fruit flavors and fine tannins leading to a finish of dark fruit and spice with a hint of oak. The 2005 A by Acacia Pinot Noir is the perfect choice for casual dinners with friends. Enjoy it with cedar-planked salmon, roasted chicken or wild mushroom risotto.

My Notes:

About A by Acacia:

California is a land of awesome beauty and diversity and its geography allows for a variety of wine flavors and styles. When we set out to make A by Acacia, we searched for the best and most representative Pinot Noir regions around the state. The Monterey vineyards produce a perfume of flowers and an underlying minerality, while Sonoma County provides bright cherry flavors, and Carneros adds a touch of classic spiciness.
