The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is a wonderful wine on its own merit, but by no means is it as impressive as the other three efforts from Ann Colgin and her husband, Joe Wender. This wine has an opaque plum/ruby color, a scent of unsmoked, high-class tobacco, underbrush, spice box, black currants, chocolate and espresso. It is seriously endowed, elegant, and again, fully mature, but without the nobility, complexity and sheer class of the Tychson Hill or the IX Estate.
A bold, rich, mouthcoating style, with dense currant, anise, mineral, black cherry and cedary mocha-laced oak that turns plush and expansive on the palate; chewy tannins making a strong presence on the finish.
While taking a decorative arts course in London, Ann Colgin fell in love with wine after taking a sip of a 1961 Chateau Latour. Her degree in art history led to a job as a Christie’s auctioneer where her burgeoning interest in wine was nurtured and blossomed into a desire to establish her own winery. Colgin Cellars was created in 1992 when she and Helen Turley secured a parcel of grapes from Herb Lamb vineyard on the lower slopes of Howell Mountain. By 1998, Colgin owned three vineyards which produced small yields, resulting in exquisite red wines: Tychson Hill, Cariad, and IX Estate. As Colgin is a collector of fine art, there is no surprise that her bottlings express the true art of fine winemaking.
