Winemaker Notes

Each year we select only the best vineyards for our Single Vineyard Series. Lee Vineyard earned its own bottling in 1998. The wine is highly fragrant with rose petal, sweet tobacco, strawberry jam, crushed blackberries, black pepper and hibiscus aromas. The medium body is rich and full up front, turning to sweet tannins, toast, and chocolate mint on the long, cherry finish. Huge fruit at the front of the palate and more austere toward the finish. It was delicious in late 2000 and will continue to be good for several years.

Leg of lamb, roasted with nuts and fruits such as apple chunks and whole grapes or dried plums and apricots, tastes exquisite when paired with the Lee Pinot Noir.

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.
