Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The dense purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard exhibits notes of cassis, charcoal and toast in a full-bodied, velvety textured, concentrated style. The tannins are ripe and the wine reveals impressive levels of richness as well as intensity. The final blend is virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon and the wine can be drunk now or cellared for 20 or more years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93(+?)

(100% cabernet sauvignon): Good deep ruby. Smoky aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and flowers. Very rich and nicely balanced, with flavors similar to the aromas. This boasts a sizable underlying structure for the vintage and will need time for its huge, slightly edgy tannins to harmonize.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Smooth, rich and graceful, with delicate plum, blackberry, anise and fresh herb notes. Elegant and stylish, this is rich without being heavy, finishing with a loamy berry aftertaste.

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.
