2010 Colgin "Tychson Hill Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This is incredibly aromatic and perfumed. Impressive violets, berries, cloves and spice. Full-bodied but starts off slowly and then builds toward the finish. It's dense but very harmonious and beautiful. Hints of chocolate at the finish. Drink or hold.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill is virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon except for tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It offers up gorgeous aromas of lavender, creme de cassis, violets, toast, incense and camphor. Layered, full-bodied and rich with great purity, focus and symmetry, this stunning effort from one of the tenderloin corridors of Napa Valley can be drunk early on or cellared for another 25-30 years.

Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of black raspberry, plum, minerals, tobacco and mocha. Sweet, dense and extremely fine-grained, with intense black raspberry, cassis and mocha flavors conveying an elegant, understated personality. Finishes with a serious tannic spine that should support long aging. Impeccably balanced cabernet. 94(+?) points.
Very firm and tannic, yet with a pleasingly dense and richly flavored core of dark berry, mineral, graphite and licorice. Unfolds slowly, ending with a dash of espresso and mocha. Needs time. Best from 2015 through 2025.
