1999 Colgin Cellars Herb Lamb Cabernet - 95 pts - 750ml

In Stock Unavailable
1999 Colgin Cellars Herb Lamb The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard is performing significantly better out of bottle than it did from cask. This 200-case cuvee spent 26 months in oak. Its opaque purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of graphite creme de cassis and licorice and full-bodied layered concentrated flavors with superb balance and density. Surprisingly sweet tannin as well as an explosive finish have developed over the last year. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020+. Colgin which is already a so-called cult wine seems to have pushed the envelope of quality even higher ... as hard as that is to believe. As always the truth is in the bottle ... in vino veritas. RP
