Colgin Tychson Cabernet 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Robert Parker: Although the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is the most developed, it remains a youthful adolescent with exceptional intensity. Notes of tapenade, bay leaf, creme de cassis, charcoal and hints of truffles as well as new saddle leather emerge from this opaque purple-hued 2001. The gorgeous perfume is followed by rich, concentrated, full-bodied flavors, sweet tannin and beautiful intensity, purity and balance. It can be drunk now (although 4-5 more years of cellaring will prove beneficial) and over the next 25 years. (Jun 2011)

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
