What a nose of dried flowers, berries, smoked meat and bacon. Full to medium body, with fresh acidity and clean and juicy finish with hints of citrus rind. This is like a top classic Cote Rotie. Drink or hold.
Offers beautifully rich dark berry fruit definition, with pure boysenberry, blackberry and blueberry flavors framed by cedary oak and spicy, floral scents. The flavors are big, yet this is elegant and graceful on the palate and long on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
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.
