Winemaker's Notes:

The myriad of dark fruit and floral notes in this Pinot Noir come from the cool, windy Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the southern reaches of Napa Valley. Satsuma plum, blackberry, red rose and violet notes weave through the enticing aromas, mingled with warm nuances of vanilla and toasted oak from barrel aging. Silky, elegant flavors echo the aromas, adding blueberry and plum to the rich fruit complexity.

You'll find this wine's lush flavors, bright acidity and fine tannins are perfectly balanced to complement a broad range of foods, from grilled salmon and chicken, to lamb and wild mushrooms.

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.
