Our Red Blend demonstrates the winemaking artistry of blending grape varietals and appellations for layers of delicious flavors. "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts," says A by Acacia winemaker Tom Westberg, quoting Aristotle. A core of Syrah gives this wine its rich berry palate and well-integrated tannins; Zinfandel adds aromatic spices and briary wild-berry juiciness in the mouth; and Merlot rounds out the fleshy midpalate. Grenache, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre complete the blend with hints of strawberry and spice.

Acacia Vineyard takes its name from the lone acacia tree on our rolling Carneros estate. The tree stands tall against the cool winds from San Francisco Bay, which signal 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.
