“Lastly, the 2016 Syrah IX Estate reminds me of the otherworldly 2010 and is as profound as Syrah gets. Tasting like Guigal’s Côte Rôtie La Mouline (maybe on steroids) with its huge notes of bacon fat, spring flowers, blue fruits, barbecued meats, and incense, it’s full-bodied and massive yet also thrillingly pure, seamless, elegant, and weightless. It’s certainly approachable today yet is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.” - Jeb Dunnuck

“The first impression of the Colgin IX Estate Syrah 2016 is a harmony of deftly balanced tannins, cassis-styled fruit and deeply complex spices (aniseed, vanilla, potpourri) reminiscent of favorite Chave Hermitage or Guigal La Turque. This vintage boasts a profound perfume of smoked meat, lightly toasted oak, graphite, violets, leather, licorice, and blackberry liqueur. A velvety texture leads to layer upon layer of spicy blue and black fruits, splendid harmony, and a 60+ second finish. Words can hardly do it justice to the sumptuous tension between seemingly competing tastes such as semi-sweet notes of grilled fig complimented by savory Jamon Serrano. Savory every sip now (decant 30 minutes) or, better yet, bury it in the cellar and it will still deliver mind-boggling pleasure in a decade!” - California Wine Advisors
