Acacia Pinot Noir Makes Me Smile

I know there are many outstanding makers of Pinot Noir.  But of those I’ve had the opportunity to drink, Pinots from Acacia have been some of the best for me.

Vineyard: Acacia
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Vintage: 2011
Appellation: California
Price: $13

Notes: The A by Acacia Pinot Noir 2011 is yet another solid performer in my book. I found an abundant core of cherry with hints of cinnamon and spice. The very light tannins add almost an effervescence on the tongue and a finish I’d describe as eucalyptus.

Important: I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
