    Currants, plums and roses. Almost an aspirinlike character. Full and round, with velvety tannins and lots of orange peel and berry. Slightly one-dimensional.

    This up and coming superstar has fashioned an outstanding 1994 and an outrageously rich, sumptuous 1993. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard (which has been bottled and will be released in 1996) should turn out to be one of the most exceptional wines of the vintage. The color is an opaque purple. The nose offers up cassis, blueberry, black-raspberry, and toasty scents, followed by gorgeously rich, sweet (from extract, not sugar) flavors, full body, gobs of glycerin, and wonderfully ripe tannin in the intense finish that must last for 40+ seconds. It is an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that will be approachable upon release; it will age for 20+ years. It is a tour de force in wine-making. It should come as no surprise that the genius behind these wines is Helen Turley. Readers are advised to get on the winery's mailing list in order to secure some of these extremely limited production wines, which are largely sold via the winery's mailing list.

    Ultrarich, dark and chocolaty, with layers of blackberry, mocha, dill, anise and spice. Sharply focused, developing a silky texture, with a long, rich, detailed aftertaste. Right now the tannins give depth and structure.--1993 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now 400 cases made

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.
