The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is performing significantly better out of bottle than it did from cask. This 200-case cuvee spent 26 months in oak. Its opaque purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of graphite, creme de cassis,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of ripe, dense, black fruits coupled with a strong blueberry essence and floral notes showcase the wonderful terroir of the Herb Lamb Vineyard. Beginning with the saturated dark color and brilliant clarity, one can see that 1999 was a very ripe and complex vintage in Napa Valley. The 1999 vintage of Colgin "Herb Lamb Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon is the smallest to date. A selective replanting process instigated by vineyard owner Herb Lamb coupled with meticulous sorting of the fruit yielded an extremely limited production from this vintage. A moderate growing season, coupled with a low yield produced a level of ripeness revealed in the 14.8% alcohol and high level of saturated black color. Elements of high-tone black skinned fruits intermingle with an essence of fresh earth and even a hint of white pepper, tobac and exotic spices. This cuvee was aged for 26 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels, thus elevating the bouquet to the signature Colgin level of complexity. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in late November 2001, we think that with a careful bottle aging regime this wine will continue to age and build complexity for at least two decades.
