More Vintages and Sizes of Colgin - Syrah IX Estate:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 10111
Good deep ruby-red. Very closed but pure nose offers crushed black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate and licorice; showing less of the game and truffle qualities of other vintages. Moderately sweet and ripe but a bit stunted on the palate; juicy but could use more pliancy. Dark berry flavors are firmed on the end by substantial tannins. This may well be passing through a sullen stage: will it expand and gain in flesh with more time in bottle?

Not to be forgotten are the 400+ cases of Colgin's Estate IX Syrah. The French-styled 2006 IX Syrah Estate offers an exotic nose of roasted meats, bouquet garni, and flowers, silky tannins, and full-bodied blackberry and cherry fruit. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
Author: James Laube
An amazing Syrah, vivid, juicy and concentrated, with blackberry and wild berry fruit providing the centerpiece to this complex, full-bodied beauty, which reveals hints of mineral, spice and pebble as it unfolds, ending with firm, chunky fruit flavors.

Good nose. Nice fruit and texture.A very alcoholic wine. Heat at the end which keeps this wine from higher marks. Despite the heated finish still a good wine.
