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 »

Issue Issue 132

($250) Medium ruby-red. High-toned aromas of mocha, meat and dried fruits, with whiffs of tar and beefsteak tomato. Sweet verging on confectionery, and conveying less energy today than the Herb Lamb. Impressively concentrated, thick, creamy wine-"like an elixir," notes winemaker Allison Tauziet. The crop level of less than two tons per acre was the lowest ever here, due in part to dehydration of the grapes. This bottle did not show quite the verve I found in the 2003 release. Finishes with building tannins.

Drink Dates 2014-2029

From a spectacular, gently sloping vineyard across from Freemark Abbey on Route 29, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a first-growth Pauillac-like feel, with creme de cassis, licorice, cedarwood and Christmas fruitcake. A floral note also makes an appearance in this dense, purple-colored wine with full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin, and a terrific personality. This is approaching maturity and should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.

Drink Dates 2009-2020

Massive, yet smooth and polished, with a subdued offering of ripe plum, floral and black cherry fruit that slowly builds in intensity and depth. Gains momentum on the finish, where the tannins are ripe and the flavors are tapered.

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.
