Colgin Cariad 2010 was rated 100 points by Robert Parker - a Californian 'Bordeaux style' blend crafted from fruit sourced from the esteemed Madrona Ranch and Thorevilos vineyard.

Colgin was founded by Ann Colgin, and since its first vintage in 1992, has rapidly become one of Napa's finest estates, specialising in complex, structured Californian classics reminiscent of top-flight Bordeaux classed growths from the left bank; crafted by winemaker Allison Tauziet and the highly renowned French consultant Alain Raynaud. Much of their produce is sold through its mailing list, for which there is a very long queue, and so we are delighted to be have secured a very small allocation of the Cariad for you to savor.

"...reveals great intensity along with abundant notes of unsmoked tobacco leaf interwoven with blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, charcoal and coffee bean nuances as well as a Pauillac-like lead pencil shaving character Robert Parker.” Robert Parker
