About the Wine

Acre got its start in 2002, making their extremely small production of wine from fruit off of their one-acre vineyard. Almost needless to say, this small vineyard was the inspiration for the name of the company. The owners stick to their ethos today, when they source fruit for their wines they are sure to only use that which is grown on other sustainably grown vineyards. This wine is absolutely dripping in classic Napa characteristics and is ready to drink today.The 2016 vintage is a can't miss vintage and this small family-run property continues to beautifully express the unique characteristics that define Napa Valley! Don't Miss.

With a lifetime of experience in the industry, plus a strong passion for all things food and wine, Mike and Talley Henry have been able to make truly exceptional and food-friendly wine. Production is still fairly small, with an emphasis on sourcing fruit from top appellations within the valley including Stags Leap, Oakville, and Yountville.

Tasting notes: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 4% Petite Verdot. Deep ruby color to the immediately accessible scents of white pepper, clove, and plum- spice cake, which continue on the palate and lead to abundant black fruit notes of black cherry, black currant, blackberry, and boysenberry. Full-bodied and rich with powerful structure and bright tannins, elements of crème de cassis, cola, and dried herbs unfold on the long and decadent finish.

Reviews

This is nicely focused, with a core of red and black currant fruit that shows a lightly racy edge despite its muscle, with hints of mesquite and sassafras peeking through. A late hint of iron checks in on the finish, which already shows a hint of maturity. Drink now through 2025. 518 cases made. ~91 Wine Spectator

Rather dried-fruit aromas with sultana and some berry-jam character, as well as chocolate and vanilla undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lightly chewy tannins and a fruity finish. Interesting red in the end. Drink or hold. ~90 James Suckling
