Here is another wine I enjoyed on a business trip to San Antonio, TX. I always try to take the opportunity to explore local favorites when I travel.  Zocca in the Westin hotel in the Riverwalk area did not disappoint.

Acrobat Pinot Noir Wine Down Wednesday

It was a cozy atmosphere and there were lots of tables with views of the river.  The wine list did not disappoint either. Since I was planning a meal of seafood and alfredo pasta, a lighter red wine was in order and this one was a great one to start off with.

Winemaker Notes:

Acrobat is life in balance. Acrobat is style and grace. Acrobat is wine born to introduce people to the drinkability and deliciousness of Pinot Noir. Responsibly grown in the breathtaking hills and valleys of Western Oregon, this wine is excellent with food and equally enjoyable on its own.

Wine Notes:

  • Winery: Acrobat Oregon Winery
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Varietal/Blend: Pinot Noir
  • Fermenting/Aging: 6 months French in oak

Tasting Notes:

This bright ruby wine  is very aromatic with aromas of red fruits and cherry.  It was on the tart side and reminded me of a cherry pie – the tart cherries, vanilla, and other spices. The finish was very light and satisfying, not to dry.

This wine pared very well with fried calamari I ordered.  The fruit-forward flavors complemented the lemon aioli that was served with the calamari.  I could see myself pulling out a bottle of this wine this summer with some BBQ fish and a fresh fruit salad. 

The Pinot Gris from Acrobat also made #1 on Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 Top 100 list and  Fortune’s list of Best wines under $15.  I’m going to have to give that one a try too for a later wine down wednesday post!

About Wine, Dine, and Roam

Hi! I’m Jess Walker and fell in love with wine back in 2015. And not just drinking wine, but learning all things about it. How each grape variety produces different flavors in wine when grown in different areas,  the affects of wine making practices on the finished wine, the culture surrounding wine in different areas. The list goes on! 

Check out my posts where I share what I learn with you and let’s get to exploring wine together!
