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.

Hard to find a good Pinot so I am trying different ones, and this one is just o.k. a bit too much tannin and oak. Am still looking for a smoother red.
