2009 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Syrah

SKU #1117027 97 points James Suckling

 This shows so much dark fruit, spice, berry and minerals incense. Full body, with lots of black pepper, spice and berry. It's so dense and beautiful. The purity of fruit is all there. Hard not to drink now. But will improve for many years ahead.  (5/2014)

96 points Vinous

 Bright, saturated medium ruby. Youthful but already highly expressive high-pitched perfume of blackberry, violet, licorice, crushed rock and honeysuckle. Savory, sappy, thick and fine-grained, delivering uncommon depth of texture and a strong umami character to its sweet/salty dark fruit and meat flavors. This wine stands out for its restraint today but it's much easier to taste than it was shortly after being bottled, and there's still a lot to come. Finishes classically dry and very long, with wonderfully suave, integrated tannins and mouthfilling perfume. (ST)  (4/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 I could have sworn the 2009 IX Estate Syrah had some Viognier in it, but all of these wines are 100% Syrah. Flowery, peppery, blackberry and bacon aromas reminiscent of a Cote Rotie jump from the glass. However, once in the mouth, the masculinity, power, awesome richness and incredible texture come forward. This killer Syrah should drink well for 20 or more years. (RP)  (10/2013)

95 points Wine Spectator

 A brilliant expression of dense, rich layers of spice, beef, wild berry, savory and herbal notes, offering intensity, focus, grace and finesse. Should evolve beautifully over the next decade or two. *Collectibles* (JL)  (12/2012)
