Sited on the knife edge between desert and rainforest, and perched at 1300’ elevation above the Columbia River, Acadia is a windswept, dry farmed, certified organic vineyard planted in an ancient pyroclastic flow on the slopes of extinct Underwood Mountain. Cool climate varieties thrive thanks to the deep volcanic soils and significant diurnal temperature swings.
This is a complete and harmonious wine that hits the pleasure button in a big way. It’s bursting with ripe juicy tangerine on the attack, with hints of peach and apricot, and revved up by the warm spice flavor of cinnamon. Understated characteristics of hay, stones, and green herbs add still more interest. The wine resolves toward tarter flavors on the medium finish, accented by tangerine zest.
