    Winemaker Notes

    The Beckstoffer delivers aromas of dried pear and cranberry that pass on to comforting flavors of cocoa and deep black cherry with toffee notes. It 's lively but with full weight throughout the mouth, ending in succulence and renewal for the palate. The tannins are persistent yet not aggressive. We anticipate the supple texture to improve for six years or more and the flavors should become increasingly complex during that time. This wine is well served accompanying a roast duck, pork, or lamb cut, particularly with a plum and berry reduction sauce.

    "Dark, healthy red. Superripe aromas of bitter cherry, flowers and cola, with a suggestion of aged steak. Ripe, concentrated and full, with dark berry, black cherry and spice flavors offering lovely sweetness. This is almost Cote de Nuits-like in the way it combines density and weight with tang and verve. Finishes long and sweet, with the tannins covered by raspberry, spices and earth. The crop level here was reportedly just 1. 5 tons per acre, and it shows."

    Acacia, California
    Acacia Winery Image

    Acacia takes its name from the lone Acacia tree that once stood on this Los Carneros vineyard. The tree stands tall against the cool winds from San Francisco Bay signaling the chilly conditions that give this region one of the longest growing seasons around. Cool temperatures, dense clay soils and extended hangtime on the vine all combine to yield Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of rare power and complexity. Gentle handcrafting brings out the full expression of this special terroir, for wines with layered varietal character over silky texture.

    As early as the 1970s Carneros became known as a source of terrific Pinot Noir, and was one of the first California regions to gain such a reputation. The combination of sunny days, cooling fog and thin clay soils are tailor-made for the variety. Another factor in Pinot Noir’s prominent place here is vintners’ willingness to experiment widely. The history of the grape in Carneros is marked by continuous research into clonal variations, viticultural techniques and site selection. Careful evaluation over time has revealed a signature flavor profile as well. Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, red berry, spice, earth and cola appear time and again in Carneros Pinot Noir. To this day the appellation remains one of California’s standard bearers for the variety.
