Description: In making Pinot Noir, we focus on the rich fruit character of the varietal, while keeping the structure of the wine in perfect balance. The grapes were hand picked in the early morning, then hand sorted and destemmed before crushing. As the must reached optimum balance, the wine was put into small oak barrels to finish fermentation, and then aged in a selection of oak barrels for eight months. A lovely ruby red in color, the 2005 Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir offers deep, fragrant aromas of violets, black cherries, toasty oak and earth. This wine is soft yet lively on the palate, with rich flavors of Satsuma plum and minerals enhanced by a touch of oak. A well-balanced acidity accentuates the fine tannins which carry through to the long finish. Pair with richer pastas, wild mushroom risotto, grilled salmon and herb-crusted pork tenderloin.
