Colgin Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley IX Estate 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Robert Parker: The dense ruby/purple-tinged, elegant 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard (230 cases) reveals sweet notes of roasted herbs, white chocolate, and black currants, medium to full body, supple tannin, and a stunning, 40- to 45-second finish. Already approachable, this lovely Cabernet should evolve for 15 or more years. (Dec 2006)

The Colgin winery, completed in 2002, is located at the northern end of IX Estate in the Pritchard Hill area of St. Helena, California. The state-of-the-art winery provides an inspiring view of Lake Hennessey. A collaboration between Tom Faherty, architect from Valley Architects of St. Helena, Hendrix Allardyce Interior Design of Los Angeles, Mark Aubert and the owners, the winery features classical design coupled with contemporary technology. The design emphasizes gentle handling of the fruit from the extensive sorting system to the gravity fed movement into the fermentation tanks. The winery is not open to the public but we wanted to share with you these images of the facility. Read less

Ruby-red. Explosive aromas of black raspberry, minerals, graphite and flowers. Wonderfully sweet and dense, with a superripe suggestion of maple syrup and a note of hot rocks. Finishes with huge, chewy but well-buffered tannins and a lingering note o... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Colgin IX Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Good full ruby. Superripe broad nose dominated by black raspberry; slightly liqueur-like. Sweet lush and fat but kept firm by an edge of acidity. The wine s substantial broad tannins arrive late allowing the fruit to open impressively on the back end. As extravagantly rich and ripe as this is there s no shortage of verve. A knockout. Today this wine was the most impressive of this outstanding collection of 03s. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
