2014 コルギン ナンバー・ナイン・エステート ナパ・ヴァレー・レッド・ワイン
Colgin IX Estate Napa Valley Red Wine
From their steep hillside vineyards on Pritchard Hill, the 2014 Proprietary Red IX Estate is an old-fashioned M?doc blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with some Cabernet Franc (rarely seen in the M?doc these years) as well as Merlot and Petit Verdot. Striking aromatics of violets, forest floor, loamy soil nuances, blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry soar from the glass of this spectacular 2014. The acidity seems reasonable but on the lower side, the texture is magnificent, and the overall purity and equilibrium flawless. This is a wine pushing, even demanding, a three-digit score once again, but I’m holding back ? at least for now. This magnificent effort from Colgin should drink beautifully for 25-30 years.
