2010 brought us small loose clusters with lower sugars than usual, yet the plants were evenly lignified. Light inncoulation produced a week long fermentation and then two weeks of soaking. The finished wine has quite low alcohol at 13.3. 2010 benefited from an additional 2 months in barrel, total of 26 months in new Teransaud, Gamba and St. Martin cooperage.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"This is another superb wine for the Ackerman Family. Reflecting the cooler 2010 vintage, the wine reveals layers of rich complexity with lovely elegance and finesse. The nose opens slowly to display wild blackberry, dark cherry, cedar, eucalyptus and hints of tobacco. On the palate the wine bursts with bright flavors and fresh acidity. Resembling a fine French Bordeaux more than a Napa Valley Cabernet, the wine shows impeccable balance of supple medium tannins, hints of toasty oak and a lingering long finish. This is a beautiful wine to enjoy over the next decade." Peter Marks, M.W.
