    Winemaker Notes

    The 2008 growing season presented nail-biting challenges that we won't soon forget—frost, wind and hail—yet this Pinot Noir proves that the vintage created many remarkable wines. The orientation and topography of our Carneros vineyards worked in our favor: much of the cold rolled off the slopes, inflicting relatively little frost damage. Mother Nature's mood turned benevolent just in time for the grapes to ripen under ideal, mild conditions. Thanks to great work in the vineyards—and a little luck—we harvested grapes of excellent quality despite temperamental weather conditions.

    Our 2008 Pinot Noir, Carneros, opens with ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry aromas that are perfumed with rose nuances. The rich fruit character is echoed on the palate, picking up notes of nuttiness from oak aging. Fine tannins structure the wine, while bright acidity nicely balances the medium-bodied flavors and gives a bright raspberry flourish to the finish.

    Acacia, California

    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.

    California

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.
