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.
The Acacia Vineyard Winery Lake Pinot Noir Carneros has flavors of dark berries, clove, sandalwood and anise.
A historic property, the Winery Lake Vineyard is nestled amongst the rolling hills of Carneros. Due to their close proximity to the bay, the vines are tempered by cool maritime influences. The Pinot Noir grapes from this famous vineyard are vinified using traditional methods of winemaking.
