2001 Colgin "Tychson Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard (a valley floor site planted on a slight incline north of St. Helena) exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a beautifully sweet nose of creme de cassis, licorice, lead pencil shavings and pen ink. A classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet tannin, full-bodied power and gorgeous purity and intensity...
(Collectibles) A sensational wine, a near perfect sphere of ripe, fleshy currant, blackberry, plum, cedar, tobacco and heady floral, rose petal aromatics. Intense, concentrated and plush, turing silky-smooth on a long, glorious finish, with espresso, nutmeg and ripe tannins. Best from 2006 through 2014.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Saturated ruby. Exotic aromas of roasted blackberry, minerals and bitter chocolate; distinctly liqueur-like. Then wonderfully sweet and full, with compelling richness and ripeness and strong notes of torrefaction and exotic spices to go with its flavors of cassis, minerals, underbrush and earth. This boasts the almost confectionery fruit quality of the best 2001s. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and outstanding palate-staining length.
