    The elegant, pure, stylish 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard offers stunning aromas of kirsch, red and black currants, cedarwood and vanillin. Tasting like a Napa version of Leoville Las Cases, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, Bordeaux-like effort with beautiful elegance, finesse and harmony. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years.

    Good full ruby. Superripe, broad nose dominated by black raspberry; slightly liqueur-like. Sweet, lush and fat but kept firm by an edge of acidity. The wine's substantial, broad tannins arrive late, allowing the fruit to open impressively on the back end. As extravagantly rich and ripe as this is, there's no shortage of verve. A knockout. Today this wine was the most impressive of this outstanding collection of '03s.

    Ripe, with a candied apple and cherry edge that turns elegant and supple on the palate, with smooth, fine-grained tannins. 240 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.
