2006 Acacia Pinot Noir Lone Tree Vineyard Carneros

See wine details

From the May 2008 wine club mailer:
"We hand harvested the fruit for the 2006 Lone Tree Vineyard Pinot Noir, then gently destemmed it before fermenting it in 100 percent stainless steel tanks. Flavors and aromas were extracted during pumpovers, after which the wine was moved to French oak barrels for nine months of aging. The wine is a deep ruby-purple color. The nose combines blackberry, plum, sweet cigar tobacco, hazelnut and earth with floral and rose notes. The mouth feel is rich and silken with ripe red fruit, wit earth and spice at mid-palate. The fine-grained tannins are luscious and broad, with balanced acids that lead to a long finish of fresh blackberries, cherry and vanilla. This wine is delicious with game birds, rabbit and rich pasta."
