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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Each succeeding vintage of Alavigna Tosca goes from strength to strength. The 2013 is a delicious blend of 60/40 Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. To be honest, you’ll be hard pressed to pick out the Cabernet because it’s beautifully integrated with the elegant nature of the Sangiovese. There are enticing aromas of sweet red cherry, dark plum, red currant and toasty oak on the nose. This leads to a wonderfully complex, rich, medium-plus bodied palate with lush tannins and an overall juicy brightness. Finesse and depth of character are hard to achieve, but this Alavigna Tosca has nailed it and it’s the best effort yet of this Cal-Italia blend from Ackerman. — Peter Marks, MW
