Our 2004 Syrah will astound you with its overall expression of Rhone meets Colgin. Syrah generally invokes all sorts of complex secondary aromatics unlike any other grape varietal. The wine possesses the Colgin hallmark of saturated black color and fresh uplifting aromatics of tobacco leaf, white and black pepper. This Syrah expresses its characteristics in a multidimensional manner with primary fruit aromatics moving to terroir driven earth, rock and organic aromas. The overall tannin structure and mouth feel are plush and suave. As with all of the wines produced by Colgin Cellars, our most important goal is to accentuate the elusive terroir. This Syrah continually evolves in the glass and is beautiful near term, will gain complexity with time and has the balance and structure to age for two decades.

Wine AdvocateAubert demonstrates a superb know-how with Syrah. These wines are macerated for 35-45 days, and given frequent pump-overs as well as punch-downs. They are aged completely in French oak. The floral-filled 2004 IX Syrah Estate (486 cases) offers super-pure blue and blackberries intermixed with hints of new saddle leather and meat. High but sweet tannins, powerful flavors, and an overall sense of poise characterize this stunning effort.

Wine SpectatorIntense and beefy, with pepper, sage and wild berry flavors that are hearty and rustic, yet enormously compelling and complex, with waves of flavor gushing across the palate. To be released April 2007. Drink now through 2014.
