Producer Notes

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... More »

Wow: mocha and caramel on the nose and palate. Sweet tannins are starting to resolve, but 1hour of air is still required. Long finish and long life ahead.

Wine Advocate # 168 Dec 2006 Robert Parker 95 Drink: 2006 - 2031 $185-$550 (200) The 2003 IX Proprietary Red Wine, a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and a dollop of Petit Verdot, demonstrates how fabulous the fruit from the estate vineyard can be. Beautiful scents of crushed rocks, spring flowers, licorice, charcoal, blackberries, and cassis are stunningly pure and complex. This opulent, intense, well-balanced, compelling, full-bodied wine appears to have softened considerably over the last year. It can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years.

Dark purple, almost black in color with an overwhelming bouquet of heavy black fruit,licorice, minerals,black olive oil, and a hint of oak. On the palate it was an intense experience - powerful and full bodied and thick like ink with the tannins noticeable but perfectly blended in. The finish was amazing.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
