95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

(54% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot, and 7% each cabernet franc and petit verdot):  Deep ruby.  Aromatic nose offers licorice, minerals, violet and mint.  Sweet and dense but airy, showing a bit more verve and lift than the Tychson Hill offering today.  But there's terrific concentration and creaminess for the vintage.  Finishes with big, broad, building tannins that seem finer-grained than those of the Tychson Hill.  The Colgin 2008s have the typical pHs found in these wines (roughly 3.85) but slightly higher total acidity than average, which helps this wine support its whopping 15.8% alcohol.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
