”our 2015 pinot noir reveals itself in elegant turns-from vibrant red cherry raspberry and juicy dark plum to hints of sun-warmed red rose petal and fragrant oak spices. The textbook perfect 2015 vintage gave us time to focus on each and every vineyard block as they ripened under sunny skies. Supple fine-grained tannins softly frame this pinot noir’s fruit-forward cashmere-textured flavors. The result is a versatile wine that pairs deliciously with grilled salmon roast lamb or sizzling pork chops. We also love it with four-cheese pasta a mushroom ravioli or rich mushroom risotto. Vineyard notes we have established close relationships with growers in ideal viticultural regions for our pinot noir giving both quality and consistency to this wine. For 2015 we selected pinot noir grapes from the central coast ava and the borden ranch ava in the cooler delta region of lodi. Pinot noir vines yield their best fruit in cooler regions so we focused our sourcing on cool-climate sites in the edna valley ava and the delta region. Here pacific ocean fog and cooling afternoon winds temper the summer sun thus extending ripening and developing abundant ripe-fruit expression and ideal acidity levels in the grapes. Winemaking notes we destemmed the grapes retaining about two-thirds whole berries for more intense fruitiness and then cold soaked the must for gentle flavor extraction. The must was fermented with assmanhausen and d254 yeast strains in stainless-steel tanks at 85 degrees fahrenheit for eight to 10 days until dry. Following pressing the young wine completed malolactic fermentation which naturally rounds the acidity and enhances mouthfeel. We then aged the wine for six months to mature the flavors and marry subtle oak-spice nuances with the vibrant fruit expression.” – acacia
