International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 168

(63% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 11% cabernet franc and 6% petit verdot): Saturated ruby. Intense, rather wild savory aromas and flavors of black raspberry, soy sauce, mocha, tobacco and game, with a hint of chocolatey superripeness. Plush, rich and sweet, conveying lovely fullness without excess weight, with underlying minerality giving the very long finish a firm edge. Silky and elegant wine. These 2010s have pHs of around 3.85, which I gather is a tad lower than average.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 209

The 2010 IX Estate is another perfect wine. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of blueberries, cassis, pen ink, asphalt, licorice and subtle oak. Full-bodied and rich but light on its feet, this spectacular effort was created from a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. Enjoy this profound wine over the next 25+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Pleasing for its richness, elegance and finesse, this presents a mix of dark berry, licorice, light cedar and loamy earth, gliding along on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Vinous Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: Dec 2012

Colgin's 2010 Red Wine IX Estate emerges from the glass with super-ripe red cherries, flowers, white truffles, spice box and mint, all in a voluptuous style that captures the very best qualities of the year. In this vintage, the IX Estate boasts a level of generosity that make it slightly more accessible than the Tychson Hill. Sweet, seamless and totally pure, the 2010 is endowed with superb balance and fabulous overall harmony. The 2010 shuts down quickly in the glass and I suspect it may do the same in bottle. Nevertheless, this is a stunning showing.

Super-complex on the nose with roses, pure fruit and walnuts. Hints of plums. It's full-bodied with velvety tannins and crazy spicy character. Firm, chewy texture. Savory finish. Even slightly salty.
