1992 Colgin-Schrader Herb Lamb Cabernet - 96 Pts!
This wine slipped through the a blind tasting with everyone mistaking it for a sumptuous first-growth Bordeaux. When told the identity of the wine one of the Belgian tasters quickly announced he was going to order 100 cases. I was quick to point out that 1 the wine is already sold out and 2 less than 1000 cases were produced. I have always thought this was a terrific wine but it was outrageously delicious in this blind tasting. The wine boasts an opaque purple color followed by a gorgeously sweet nose of blueberries and blackberries intertwined with smoky toasty oak. The enormously opulent texture viscous richness and huge quantities of sweet pure fruit were deftly balanced by just enough acidity and ripe tannin. This full-bodied awesomely-endowed wine has never shown better than it did in this blind tasting against some of the greatest wines produced in Bordeaux. Although soft enough to be drunk it promises to evolve for at least 20 years. RP
