Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.9

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Melanson Vineyard emerges mostly from upper blocks on this site, a striking hillside that faces Colgin, where the steep exposure can yield wines of tremendous pedigree. That is exactly what comes through here. Inky red/purplish fruit, spice, rose petal, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco meld together effortlessly, with silky tannins that wrap it all up. Bold and luscious, but with tremendous nuance, the Melanson Cabernet is a total stunner in 2018. As I have written in the past, farming here has improved tremendously in recent years. This is another superb example of the quality that this site is capable of. Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown gave the 2018 a relatively short 10 days on the skins. I imagine he thought the site would take care of the rest. It's hard to argue with that. The 2018 is off the charts great. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)

Cariad Napa Valley Red Blend 1999

My first Cariad vineyard - a delightful expression of Cabernet in a glass! Graphite, tar, and dark fruit with mature tannic structure - less intense than Colgin’s IX… — a month ago

Too young, obviously, but it called to me from the cellar! Gorgeous layers - individuals now, but I’m guessing will integrate together beautifully with more bottle age. Big dense black fruit leads the nose, whole the palette brings a great meaty smoky quality. There’s already a satisfying savoriness there I can’t wait to check in again 10 years or so. That special energy and beautiful texture I expect from Colgin is there in spades. Bottle 2 waits patiently! — 3 months ago

Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

1 hour decant(decent fine/cloudy sediment). A remarkable dark garnet with some bricking. On the nose: rolling waves of sour cherry, stewed meat, minty menthol, licorice, forest floor. Taste: layered, juicy, lush mouthcoating wine with dark cherry/plum, chocolate, graphite, and peppery cedar medium plus finish. YUM! — a month ago
