Ackerman Family Vineyards Alavigna Tosca 2013

2013 Harvest arrived early and in abundance. A picture perfect year in Napa Valley, but the challenges were evident in dealing with the possibilities of early sugar spikes for our new source of Sangionvese in north St Helena. As usual the Ackerman Estate vineyard came in at the end of the picking season for Napa Valley with good quantities from our Certified Organic 11 acres.

Ackerman Family Vineyards Le Chatelaine 2013

In Spring 2012 the lowest 2/3 of an acre was overgrafted to equal vine counts of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The grafts took well and there was bloom and set that first year. That fruit was discarded, because of it’s youth on the stalk. With well healed grafs, these vines lept from the canes in 2013 making good cluster counts with developed, distinctive and unique-to-each-varietal’s flaovr. The parcel was harvested together. The Cabernet from the organically farmed old vines on the family property was glorious.

Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

A wet winter and spring brought rainfall into mid-June that delayed bloom resulting in shatter. After a consistently cool summer season, significant mid-October rain pushed the vintage even later. A prolonged Indian summer provided needed ripening time to the grapes, and had a major impact on the quantity, but not the quality. While tonage was low, the fruit this year made for a well-balanced wine with good intensity, structure and texture with brightness of aromatics and flavor.

Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

A predictable year resulted in harvest on October 21st. After a week of soaking and inactivity, the slight, encouraging innoculation of yeast began a fermentation of 10 days. After 24 total days of skin contact, we drained to 100% new oak; Taransaud, Gamba and St. Martin barrels. There were 4 rackings during 25 months in barrel, mellowing tannins, enhancing aromas and creating the flavors we wanted before bottling. As is the policy, there were no fining agents used. Also, this is unfiltered. Gove Celio and Kelly Wheat made the wines.

Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

The 2008 Winegrowing season brought some of the coldest, most frost affected nights in recent memory, but some of the hottest, driest daytime weather as well. The dry warm weather was very helpful in fruit ripening and mellowing tannins with deep fruit flavors through out.

Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

The 2005 Napa grape growing season will not soon be forgotten. Harvest was late for our Coombsville vineyard, but not disapointing. Vines increased stored energy and helped create a recipe for higher yields and after using 100% new French oak from Taransaud, Gamba and St. Martin, the wine was ready to be bottled after 24 months.
