    October 6, 2020 - Decanted three hours. Pure and balanced redcurrant, macintosh apple, licorice, molasses, bright saucy acid, fine tannins. Medium-plus body, long finish. This is the finest aged Colgin I've had to date. It's remarkable how different their cuvees are from one another. The Tychson Hill shows as precise and high-toned with orchard fruit and cider-like acid. It's absolutely singing right now. Alas, my only bottle.

    June 8, 2019 - Deep color no amber. Dark blueberry aromatics. Really yummy in the mouth. Must have significant bit of Merlot planted on Tychson Hill. Very apparent here. Tried to convince myself it was a Pomerol but more Napa in character. Tannins all silky and nice finish. Relatively short drinking window left.

    August 12, 2017 - Violet and dark fruit on the nose. Initially boysenberry and cherry with strong tobacco. After 30 mins did it open up with flavors exploding. More fruit forward. Licorice, currants coming through. Long finish. Medium body. Doesnt feel 100% cab. Some tannic finish. Giving 95 as it seems to be more merlot as some have suggested

    April 21, 2017 - Lovely wine, perhaps a bit overwhelmed by the Elk Steak with which it was served - still wanted to drink it longer but only had a small taste

    November 19, 2016 - Napa Valley Master Class with Robert Parker; 11/10/2016-11/20/2016 (Napa Valley): During a tasting lunch at Colgin. Lots of blueberry in the nose, some oak and bakery, touch of smoke. Rich on the palate, very soft tannins, creamy mouthfeel. This smells and feels like a Pomerol/Merlot. Aromatically not complex enough for a score beyond 95.
