|Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
I always considered Acacia to be a pioneer when it comes to Carneros and Pinot Noirs. Founded in 1979, this winery specializes in two Burgundy varieties: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Dark ruby color and lovely aroma of exotic flowers, dark cherries and plums. On the palate it was silky, medium body Pinot Noir with lovely expression of ripe fruit, notes of wild blackberries, cherries and baked plums. Light hints of cacao and vanilla. Very smooth tannins and great acidity.
Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir to me is the textbook Pinot Noir, as close to Burgundy style as Carneros appellation allows it. Based on the quality of this wine, it must be considered a great value as well!
