International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 156

(54% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot, and 7% each cabernet franc and petit verdot): Deep ruby. Aromatic nose offers licorice, minerals, violet and mint. Sweet and dense but airy, showing a bit more verve and lift than the Tychson Hill offering today. But there's terrific concentration and creaminess for the vintage. Finishes with big, broad, building tannins that seem finer-grained than those of the Tychson Hill. The Colgin 2008s have the typical pHs found in these wines (roughly 3.85) but slightly higher total acidity than average, which helps this wine support its whopping 15.8% alcohol.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

Originally rated 95+, this dense opaque purple-colored blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot exhibits notes of chocolate fudge, mocha, black cherry, blackberry, licorice, smoke and toasty oak. Dense, full-bodied and chewy, it has not yet begun to reveal the nuances and complexity of other Cariad vintages. While it is a big, rich effort, I think it will develop along the lines of the 2000 and 2003, rather than reach the super qualitative level such as 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2007.

Aromas of ripe blueberry, strawberry and red currant are engagingly complex and supple in this Cabernet blend, which is full-bodied, graceful and elegant, ending with a long seamless finish that picks up a touch of gravel and tobacco leaf. 54 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

This shows such amazing aromas of porcini mushrooms with dark fruits and Chinese tea and smoke. Decadent. Changes all the time. Exotic. Full-bodied, with a round and soft texture. Long and very intense with fabulous fruit. So much going on. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Hard not to enjoy now but will improve with age.
