Colgin Proprietary Red IX Estate 2003, 750mL (WA96+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Colgin Proprietary Red IX Estate

750mL

Vintage: 2003
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA96+
Rated 96+ points by the Wine Advocate: `The 2003 IX Estate Proprietary Red is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from their steep hillside vineyards. The youngest, tightest, most masculine wine of this quartet, it will benefit from another 5-6 years of cellaring and should have 25 years of life ahead of it. This impressive, blue/purple-colored 2003 behaves more like a 4- to 5-year-old wine than one that is a decade old. It is just beginning to strut its full potential. There is a roasted meaty character to this beauty, along with plenty of cassis, blackberries, blueberries, incense and spring flower notes. It admirably reveals the great terroir Ann Colgin and her husband, Joe Wender, have unlocked high above Lake Hennessey.` -- Robert Parker in Issue #207 of the Wine AdvocateMore Information about this producer: `When Colgin`s 2003s were made, winemaker Mark Aubert was working with Bordeaux consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. Both remember 2003 as a year of small yields with a wet spring, a moderate summer, and huge heat spikes during the third week of September.` -- Issue #207 of the Wine Advocate
