2001 Colgin Cellars Cariad Cabernet - 98 Pts!
Virtually perfect the 2001 Cariad 420 cases is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon 31% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Mark Aubert told me there was an extended maceration of nearly 50 days because the tannin got sweeter and sweeter with each additional day after three weeks. This seamless offering possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a smorgasbord of aromas including Valrhona chocolate cigar tobacco blackberries black currants licorice incense and espresso. Sweet on the entry with a voluptuous mid-palate and a spectacular finish with the tannin hardly noticeable this is a proprietary red of extraordinary quality and singularity. As it sat in the glass additional nuances continued to develop and the wine seemed to swell and become even richer with each sip. I'm not sure it doesn't deserve a three-digit score. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2028. RP
