1996 コルギン ハーブ・ラム・ヴィンヤード カベルネ・ソーヴィニヨン
Colgin Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
The saturated black/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard displays this winerys hallmark - a provocative nose of blueberry jam, orchid flowers, and smoky new oak intertwined with cassis. Additional aromas of licorice and exotic Asian spices emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Extremely full-bodied and rich, with more noticeable tannin than the 1997, this large-scaled yet extraordinarily rich wine is like drinking cassis/blueberry liqueur. Its sweet tannin and remarkable 40+-second finish are amazing. Anticipated maturity: now-2022.
