The Character

Tasting Notes The 2016 Acre Cabernet is a classic representation of Napa Valley Cabernet with its deep ruby color to the immediately accessible scents of white pepper, clove, and plum-spice cake, which continues 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. Stunning right out of the gate but will also age beautifully for years to come.

Brand Story

Welcome to the world of Acre wines! It all started with a one acre vineyard planted by co-founder Dave Becker in 2002. Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Mike and Talley Henry purchased the winery from the founders in 2017 and brought on veteran winemaker, Richard Bruno, and together, they are honored to continue the legacy of producing highly acclaimed, handcrafted Acre wines from celebrated family-owned vineyards in the Napa Valley. They produce classic Napa Valley varietals from organically or sustainably farmed vineyards that showcase the unique characteristics of the AVAs from which they source their grapes. They believe that great wine starts in the vineyard and that the partnership between the grower, vineyard manager, and winemaker is essential to what you ultimately taste in the glass.
