(15.6% alcohol; includes bits of cabernet franc and petit verdot from an acre of vines planted above this vineyard in 2007): Good deep, bright ruby. Varietally expressive aromas of plum, black cherry, mocha, menthol, spices and tobacco leaf. Lush, sweet and rich but with surprising energy for such a layered wine. Chocolate and mocha notes are nicely countered by mineral lift. Builds slowly and inexorably on the back end, finishing with noteworthy power.

About This Producer


Ann Colgin, a former fine art dealer, began her label in 1992, and it quickly became one of the most sought-after names in Napa. Winemaking duties were originally handled by Helen Turley, then Mark Aubert in 1999. Production of the Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is very small, with only about 350 cases produced each vintage. As with most of the world's truly great wines, Colgin's philosophy revolves around low yields and meticulous care of the fruit in the vineyard, winery and transportation between the two.
