The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard (a valley floor site planted on a slight incline north of St. Helena) exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a beautifully sweet nose of creme de cassis, licorice, lead pencil shavings and pen ink. A classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet tannin, full-bodied power and gorgeous purity and intensity, it will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for 30+ years. (RP)
A big, vertical wine, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill is dark, powerful and explosive. Black cherries, savory herbs, smoke, licorice, tobacco, incense, lavender and a host of mineral-inflected notes all open as the 2001 captivates all the senses. Suggestions of melted road tar and smoke all contribute to the wine's brooding personality. The 2001 Tychson Hill has long been one of my favorite Colgin wines. Today, it is superb. (AG)
*Collectibles* A sensational wine, a near perfect sphere of ripe, fleshy currant, blackberry, plum, cedar, tobacco and heady floral, rose petal aromatics. Intense, concentrated and plush, turing silky-smooth on a long, glorious finish, with espresso, nutmeg and ripe tannins. (JL)
Bright dark red. Slightly lower-toned on the nose than the 2000 edition, offering scents of tobacco, smoke, charcoal, graphite, dusty herbs, hot stones and cigar box. Classically dry, firm and claret-like: imagine a hypothetical blend of a Pauillac and a Margaux. Finishes with substantial but polished tannins and a juicy quality that suggests there's more ahead. Still, I recall finding more sappiness and power in the early going. 93+ (ST)
