*10R* 2013 Colgin Cellars 'IX Estate' Syrah (Napa Valley, CA)
Weight: 10R Varietal: Syrah Region: Napa Valley, California Score: 98 Points - Robert Parker
We've been lucky enough to visit a lot of vineyards on our wine journey, but Colgin, sitting high atop Pritchard Hill in Napa, was one of our most memorable stops. The Colgin wines are a perfect match to TJ's palate, and among his favorite wines ever. The 2013 vintage is an excellent example of their nuanced approach to Syrah, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors of blackberry, red meat, charcoal, coffee, and pepper. To say this wine is smooth is an understatement. It glidse through your mouth and leaves you in awe of its supple nature. A sexy wine from a master winery.
