Two years ago, I visited Colgin during harvest and was again reminded of how special this property is. Tucked into the hillside at the top of Pritchard Hill is Colgin's steep 20-acre IX Estate Vineyard and state-of-the-art winery facility. I consider Colgin to be one of the old guard cult wineries that continue to stay relevant despite the ever-changing Napa Valley winery landscape. I will be picking up this 2014 release at the winery the first week of November so can ship this beginning November 6th.
“From their steep
hillside vineyards on Pritchard Hill, the 2014 Proprietary Red IX Estate is an
old-fashioned Médoc blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with some
Cabernet Franc (rarely seen in the Médoc these years) as well as Merlot and
Petit Verdot. Striking aromatics of violets, forest floor, loamy soil nuances,
blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry soar from the glass of this
spectacular 2014. The acidity seems reasonable but on the lower side, the
texture is magnificent, and the overall purity and equilibrium flawless. This
is a wine pushing, even demanding, a three-digit score once again, but I’m
holding back – at least for now. This magnificent effort from Colgin should
drink beautifully for 25-30 years.”
