1999 Colgin - Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon - USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley - Red

USA - California - Napa - Napa Valley

Red Cabernet Sauvignon
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 »

Full ruby. Flamboyant, pungent, sweetly oaky aromas of kirsch, dark berries, flowers and black pepper. Lush, dense and very concentrated; like a top Bordeaux from a very ripe year, this will depend more on its huge tannins than on its rather low acidity for longevity. The tannins spread out to saturate the entire palate.

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is performing significantly better out of bottle than it did from cask. This 200-case cuvee spent 26 months in oak. Its opaque purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of graphite, creme de cassis, and licorice, and full-bodied, layered, concentrated flavors with superb balance and density. Surprisingly sweet tannin as well as an explosive finish have developed over the last year.

Dark ruby color. Blackberry, meat and cherry aromas. Serious concentration. Full-bodied, with dried herb character and a long, rich finish. Slightly dry finish. One-dimensional. Tastes a bit like lamb and herbs. Not sure this is a perfect bottle.

Nice nose of lead pencil, earth and dark fruit. This is holding up nicely- I don't think it's in any danger of fading too soon. The only negative to me was a slight bitterness on the finish- a bit like a sip of espresso. 94 pts.

ntense, dry, herbal and earthy, with dried currant, sage and dusty berry flavors that are austere and tannic. Though still vibrant, the flavors are muted. Tasted from magnum.'1999 California Cabernet blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. 200 cases made

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.
