Thanks to David Abreu’s vineyard management team taking care of the vines at Colgin, each year the Colgin winemaking team makes their version of the best that David Abreu's single vineyards has to offer for their own wine, Cariad. This 2019 Red comes from Abreu Madrona Ranch Vineyard. Because the oldest portion of this block is over 36 years old, it “bears a soulful mark of the land, with the polish and esteem of pristine fruit. A bevy of dark fruit flavors like blackberry, cherry, and black currant are woven together with generous notes of earth and spice. Commanding aromatics make way to reveal a wine loaded with the succulence of a tender cut of meat. Finely polished tannins melt across the palate as dark chocolate and herbal notes of mint build into the finish. Both classic and modern, the 2019 Cariad is a poignant example of the charm of this sophisticated vintage.” – Paul Roberts. 99 Points, Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
