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.

The small hillside vineyard across from Freemark Abbey called Tychson Hill is unquestionably a noble site, as evidenced by every wine that has been produced from this vineyard planted under the guidance of superstar viticulturist, David Abreu. Colgin's 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill possesses an exquisite perfume of acacia flowers, cedar, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. Its style suggests a hypothetical blend of a Pauillac and Margaux. With silky tannin as well as an enormously concentrated yet elegant, pure style, this sensational Cabernet can be drunk now, but will be even better with another 5-7 years of bottle age. It should last for 20-25 years.
