Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 98

From Colgin's first-growth quality estate vineyard, Tychson Hill, located north of St. Helena, on the western slopes, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard is performing far better out of bottle than it did from cask. An extraordinary bouquet of flowers, cedar, tobacco leaf, black currants, blueberries, chocolate, and scorched earth scents is followed by a wine of prodigious concentration, purity, depth, and sweet tannins. An amazing effort for this vintage, it is a compelling bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

Good saturated ruby. Deep, brooding nose offers superripe scents of plum, mocha, smoked meat and dark chocolate, all lifted by a floral nuance. Wonderfully sweet and lush, showing slightly less clarity of flavor and refinement today than the Herb Lamb but even greater pliancy of texture. Finishes very long and sweet, with the ripe tannins thoroughly supported by mid-palate stuffing. This seemed to firm up in the glass as its underlying minerality made itself felt.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

A rich, savory style, with complex currant, wild berry, cedar, herb and spice flavors, shaded by toasty oak. Full-bodied and tightly wound, structured and persistent, ending with firm tannins and a minerally edge.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
