Acacia Pinot Noir Lee 1999
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 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.
