“The 2016 IX Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple, it comes strutting out of the glass with flamboyant Black Forest cake, blueberry compote and plum pudding notions plus hints of spice cake, unsmoked cigars, menthol, licorice and dusty soil and accented by wafts of tar and black tea. The palate is full-bodied yet incredibly poised and vibrant with amazing freshness and very fine-grained, very firm tannins. It possesses the most provocative earthy sparks, providing arresting depth to the very long, beautifully perfumed finish. Stunning.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Many aficionado consider Colgin IX Estate Cabernet 2016 the ‘Wine of the Vintage’ as Robert Parker awarded it 100 points and then the Wine Spectator magazine gave it their top rating for Napa. We'll make it a trifecta of top marks as this red wine is a masterpiece! Colgin's newest release is supremely satisfying with a cashmere-like texture and depth of glorious flavors tightly wound at this moment whilst promising to mature gracefully for at least a decade. A bouquet of violets and chocolate covered espresso beans lead to an intoxicating symphony of black currants, black cherries, and hints of Toblerone chocolate. The statuesque finish includes notes of olive tapenade and truffles.” - California Wine Advisors
