This vintage is noted as a difficult farming year for many due to extreme hot weather in July. The estate with it’s well rooted vines, east west direction and restricted afternoon sun, allowed the vineyard to transcend the heat and the wine achieved the right balance of structure and fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
2003 Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon didn’t suffer the extremes of more northern vineyards and the result is an exquisite wine, which continues to develop beautifully in the bottle. Nuances of dark currant, black cherry, cocoa, cedar, earth and oak spice have combined to yield an even more profound and complex wine. The enchanting flavors, medium full body and rich yet balanced tannins make this eminently drinkable now, but will easily hold for another five or more years beyond that. —Peter Marks, MW
