The 2007 IX Proprietary Red Estate (69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) exhibits the biggest bouquet of all these wines. Terrific blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with incense, minerals, espresso, and white chocolate are followed by a wine with staggering concentration yet thrilling balance and symmetry. This is a tour de force in winemaking from a great, great site at an elevation of 900-1,000 feet. It should drink well for 30+ years. Range: 98-100
Classy, intense and vibrant, full-bodied and layered, with wonderful balance, this red delivers vivid blackberry, wild berry, mineral, anise and dusty, cedary oak flavors that are trim and focused, yet expansive, as they unfold. Ends with a long, detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2021.
While taking a decorative arts course in London, Ann Colgin fell in love with wine after taking a sip of a 1961 Chateau Latour. Her degree in art history led to a job as a Christie’s auctioneer where her burgeoning interest in wine was nurtured and blossomed into a desire to establish her own winery. Colgin Cellars was created in 1992 when she and Helen Turley secured a parcel of grapes from Herb Lamb vineyard on the lower slopes of Howell Mountain. By 1998, Colgin owned three vineyards which produced small yields, resulting in exquisite red wines: Tychson Hill, Cariad, and IX Estate. As Colgin is a collector of fine art, there is no surprise that her bottlings express the true art of fine winemaking.
