A wet winter and spring in the Coombsville AVA 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 2011 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon with good intensity, structure and texture with brightness of aromatics and flavor.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Ackerman 2011 Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon continues this winery’s long-standing, superb reputation for producing elegant wines with complexity and finesse that is too rarely found in the esteemed Napa Valley. Hailing from the cooler 2011 vintage, this wine reminds me of a classed-growth Bordeaux with its surprising freshness and elegance. There’s plenty of deep red cherry fruit, fresh herbs, mint and toasty oak nuances to please all types of palates. Lovely to drink now, this should surprise those who keep a few bottles around until 2020. —Peter Marks, MW
