    95 Almost black in color. Flavors are of blackberry, cassis, Provençal herbs; the 100% new oak adds rich toast and char notes. Tannins are brilliant, dense and fluffy. Grown at the base of Howell Mountain, this is classic mountain Cab, beautiful now, fleshy and fat, but with a 20-year lifespan.

    93 The medium to full-bodied 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard displays notes of lavender, forest floor, red and black currants. Fleshy and round with good purity and a 30- to 35-second finish, this open-knit, complex, fully mature red can be drunk over the next 7-8 years. 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.

    91 Deep ruby-red. Deep aromas of black raspberry and mocha, with a suggestion of maple syrup. Densely packed and sweet, with enticing flavors of raspberry, black cherry and minerals. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins.
