The eagerly awaited release of their Cabernet based IX. Colgin is a truly impressive and highly regarded estate and this wine has the potential to be on the finest ever. Already Robert Parker, James Suckling and Antonio Galloni plus others are saying this has the potential for 100 points.

“Absolutely spectacular aromatics of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with creosote, graphite and floral notes are followed by a wine of great depth, elegance, richness and purity. Simply loaded, but with pristine harmony and equilibrium, this is a sensational tour de force.” Robert Parker

”Fabulous intensity and energy in this young red with wet earth, violets, black currants, black olives, sweet tobacco and blackberries. So complex. Full-bodied with incredible depth and richness.” James Suckling
