Colgin Cellars 2004 IX Estate Syrah

Tasting notes: Exhibits a deep indigo color that creates anticipation for its concentration of complex aromas: sweet, moist tobacco and hints of cumin, black pepper, and spicy dried meat. Worth knowing: Ann Colgin’s departure from her focus on cabernet sauvignon was, in part, at the urging of her husband, a collector of grand Rhône wines. Some might say it was something of a leap of faith, given her clientele’s devotion to that signature Napa grape. But the result deliciously justifies the gamble.
