Lot #432. Colgin Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard 1993

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 RP.
"This up and coming superstar has fashioned an outstanding 1994 and an outrageously rich, sumptuous 1993. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard (which has been bottled and will be released in 1996) should turn out to be one of the most exceptional wines of the vintage. The color is an opaque purple. The nose offers up cassis, blueberry, black-raspberry, and toasty scents, followed by gorgeously rich, sweet (from extract, not sugar) flavors, full body, gobs of glycerin, and wonderfully ripe tannin in the intense finish that must last for 40+ seconds. It is an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that will be approachable upon release; it will age for 20+ years. It is a tour de force in wine-making. It should come as no surprise that the genius behind these wines is Helen Turley. Readers are advised to get on the winery's mailing list in order to secure some of these extremely limited production wines, which are largely sold via the winery's mailing list." Wine Advocate #102, Dec 1995
Provenance: The Chartreuse Cellar
