"We have every vintage of Ackerman Family Vineyards' Cabernet Sauvignon in our cellar. And we will sometimes drink a vertical of the early years at dinner. My favorite is the 2004. We found Ackerman in 2012 through wine loving friends in Hong Kong. Having drunk a sample of each year we decided to visit Lauren and Lars at the vineyard in Coombsville to meet two of the people behind the beautiful wine. What a fantastic day. They could not have been more gracious hosts and they spent the time to show us through the vineyard. We admire the principles applied in the vineyard at Ackerman and love the product that results. Clearly others do too - we believe some vintages have now made it to the wine list at Per Se in our home town of New York!"
