The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is performing significantly better out of bottle than it did from cask. This 200-case cuvee spent 26 months in oak.

This 200-case cuvee spent 26 months in oak. Its opaque purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of graphite creme de cassis and licorice and full-bodied layered concentrated flavors with superb balance and density. Surprisingly sweet tannin as well as an explosive finish have developed over the last year. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020+. Colgin which is already a so-called "cult" wine seems to have pushed the envelope of quality even higher ... as hard as that is to believe. As always the truth is in the bottle ... in vino veritas.

Tightly wound with a firm core of herb currant tobacco and black cherry fruit that's intense and concentrated. It finishes with cedary oak and firm dry tannins indicating a need for short-term cellaring. Best from 2004...
