  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    (450 cases produced): Deep black ruby. Crystallized black cherry, black raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry, bitter chocolate, shoe polish and sexy oak tones on the perfumed, slightly floral nose. Supple entry, then quite unforthcoming in the middle palate. But already displays uncanny texture and depth, as well as extraordinary ripeness which somewhat mitigates this wine's normal impression of austerity. Distinctly Latour-like. Finishes with strong, tongue-dusting tannins and great persistence. A superb vintage for this boutique cabernet. 94(+?).

    Loads of plums and dried flowers, with hints of fresh roses. Full-bodied, very layered, with wonderful juicy tannins and a long, long finish. A big and powerful wine with everything going for it. Solid core here. Hard not to drink it now.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 99

    Sadly only 400 cases were made of the 1997. The nearly perfect 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard was bottled in May, 1999, and appears to have recovered beautifully from bottle shock. Saturated black/purple-colored with a knock-out nose of blackberries, blueberries, lavender, licorice, and toast, this is a profound, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. It displays a seamless, velvety texture, layers of concentrated fruit, and a 45+ second finish. Am I being too conservative in not giving it a 3-digit score?

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.
