About the wine

The 2012 vintage, is the first vintage produced by Clare and Gonzague Lurton, who are part of great Bordeaux families. Acaibo is nestled in the hills in a small corner of the Chalk Hill area. The estate sits in an intimate bowl between three valleys: the Russian River Valley, the Alexander Valley, and Knight’s Valley. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

TASTING NOTES

The Acaibo is remarkable for its very intense, almost seductive expression of aromas. The bouquet offers an elegant combination of floral notes (violets), spices (pepper, cinnamon, liquorice and vanilla), red fruit (blackberries and raspberries) and earthy undertones.

FOOD PAIRING

Goes well with steak, beef fillet and rack of lamb.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

This is the first ever vintage of this American project. Sold out at the winery, this wine is now a collector’s item.
