Colgin Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Herb Lamb 2005
From day one, the 2005 Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet has been an incredibly fragrant wine in the making. With a beautiful ruby pitch, the wine shows an amazing concentration of flavors. Earthy notes of truffle and forest floor intermingle with brooding aromas of black fruits, resin, chocolate mint and smoked meats, making for a very seductive Herb Lamb Cabernet. The wine is at once supple and rich, revealing great breadth across the palate. The softened texture of the tannin make this vintage of Herb Lamb Cabernet remarkably delicious at release, but this wine will undoubtedly improve with a minimum of 5 years of age, and last 20-25 years.

The color is dark and saturating with a surprising clarity for an unfined, unfiltered wine produced in the Bordeaux style. This wine embodies that structure that has become the hallmark of Colgin wines: bright jammy fruit aromas and character combined with soft ripe tannins. Strong black cherry and raspberry aromas lead into a beautifully balanced wine experience featuring fresh blueberry jam and an earthy freshness reminiscent of some of the finest wines from the Paulliac region of Bordeaux.
