Collection includes one bottle of each of the following wines:

Colgin Cabernet Blend Napa IX Estate 2016
100 Points: “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

Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Eisele 2012
100 Points: “The Araujo Eisele 2012 has become an awe-inspiring thriller following a few years of deep time in the winery’s private library. Built like a thoroughbred, this Cabernet blend offers a distinguished experience now and will continue to dazzle throughout this decade. The cashmere-like texture introduces notes of voluptuous dark fruit, baking spices, and hints of espresso deftly balanced by silky tannins and perfectly integrated oak. The majestic finish lasts a full minute now with sultry notes of black truffles, and exotic herbs. This is one of the most beautifully aged Napa reds we’ve sampled in years!” (re-sampled 2020)

Dalla Valle Proprietary Red Napa Maya 2017
99 Points: “Tasted over two consecutive days to glimpse full aging potential, this majestic Cabernet blend is simply awe-inspiring and a serious contender for wine of the vintage! After an hour of decanting, it offers a distinguished experience and will continue to dazzle for at least another decade. Exotic spices emerge across the creamy texture, reminding me of favorite vintages from Bordeaux’s Right Bank. The finish lasts a full minute with majestic notes of black truffles and hints of blueberry cobbler. Enjoy this tantalizing treasure 2022 through 2030.”
