    Very deep garnet-purple, the 2015 IX Syrah Estate opens with intense crushed black cherries, black plums and mulberries with underlying black pepper, peppered salami, violets and chocolate box plus a lovely star anise and sandalwood waft. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully soft and sexy, it gives tons of perfumed black fruit and spice cake layers, finishing very long.

    The 2015 Syrah is a total knock-out. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, rose petal and mint are some of the notes that race out of the glass, but here, too, it is the wine's stunning textural richness that stands out most. Full-throttle and intense in every dimension, the 2015 captivates all the senses with its magnificent, towering beauty. I would prefer to cellar the 2015 for at least a few years, but even today, in its primary stage, the 2015 is phenomenal.

    An intense, grippy style, with a well of dark currant and fig fruit held in check for now by loamy tannins and a wall of dark tobacco and earth notes. This has great drive, which bodes well, with a charcoal note scoring the fruit on the finish, adding extra detail and range. A distinctive and authoritative red. Best from 2021 through 2035. 585 cases made. — JM

    Smelling this takes my breath away. Cloves, floras, metal shavings, blackberries and smoked meat. Mandarin zest, too. Full body with a perfect balance of ultra-fine tannins and great complexity. Goes on for minutes. Sets a new standard of syrah for California. Don't wait to drink this.

    The 2015 Syrah IX Estate is reminiscent of a Hermitage from the likes of Michel Chapoutier. Cured meats, blackberries, cracked pepper, and spring flower notes all emerge from this layered, elegant, gorgeously pure Syrah that has integrated acidity, perfect balance, and a great, great finish. It needs 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep for 15+.

  • 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.
