(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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
