Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Acacia Winery:

Situated just two miles from San Francisco Bay in the Carneros District of Napa Valley, Acacia Vineyard is distinguished by a cool microclimate dominated by wind and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean, and by shallow, dense clay soils. While these difficult growing conditions limit grape production, they result in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes of rare power and complexity.

Founded in 1979, Acacia made one of the first Pinot Noirs in the Carneros District. Today Acacia is a leader in the new Carneros by handcrafting compelling Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that defy conventional winemaking wisdom and consistently exceed expectations. A firm winemaking approach to Pinot Noir highlights the bold character of Carneros fruit while capturing the grape's earthy complexity and silky texture. Acacia's Carneros Chardonnay is ripe and crisp.
