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.

“Another perfect wine from Ann Colgin and her winemaking team . An absolutely compelling wine, with notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis, it has the full smorgasbord of black and blue fruits, wonderfully integrated, toasty oak, acidity and tannin, a floral note that is unmistakable, and great richness, density and purity. It is an utterly exceptional wine and a tribute to not only a great vineyard, but impeccable winemaking and upbringing…” Robert Parker

“A magnificent, towering wine... The interplay of opulent fruit, minerality, savory nuances and mountain tannin is utterly captivating. The most structured and backward of Colgin's Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2013s, the IX Estate is going to need a few years to fully come together, but it is stratospheric, even today. Lavender, sage, mint and a host of mineral-inflected notes meld into the deeply satisfying finish. I can't wait to see how this ages.” Vinous
