Description

For over three decades, Colgin Cellars has embraced the ideal of crafting wines of harmony, grace, and precision from exceptional hillside vineyards in the heart of the Napa Valley. This was in 1992 when Ann Colgin sourced fruit from the Herb Lamb vineyard to craft her first wine. The first vintage of Cariad was produced in 1999.

Driven by a love for the land and a reverence for the artistic beauty of the creation of fine wine, Colgin Cellars is synonymous with elegance, power, and longevity. 

 

'This is the first vintage with fruit from Josephine’s Hill included. This 2.38-acre north-facing hillside vineyard seems to have this incredible ability to retain all its flavor nuances with extended hang-time. By comparison, the rest of the Tychson Hill vineyard is planted to a gentler slope. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard has gorgeous floral notions of lilacs, lavender and roses with sandalwood and cinnamon stick sparks over a core of cassis, blackberry pie, kirsch and redcurrant jelly plus a waft of cigar boxes. The full-bodied palate is rich, concentrated, expressive and velvety, offering seamless freshness to lift and entice the mid-palate, finishing very, very long with some savory notions starting to unfurl. It is one of those wines that is so unique, expressive and perfect in every way that it sets your heart racing with every sip.'100pts, Lisa Perotti-Brown (Robert Parket/Wine Advocate)
