The dense purple-hued 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard exhibits classic notes of creme de cassis, charcoal/creosote, chocolate, and subtle toasty oak along with beautiful ripeness, sweet tannin, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. It is significantly, as well as atypically, more accessible and fleshy than the 2005, a rarity for these two vintages. (RP)
Inviting aromas and flavors of plum, black raspberry, minerals and tobacco, complicated by hints of smoke and game. Sweet, lush, broad and complex; this really spreads out to coat the palate. For all its dimension, though, there's also lovely mineral precision and lift. Finishes with ripe, building tannins and a distinctly juicy quality. This vineyard was picked last in 2006, in mid-October, and the wine was bottled in August of 2008, a couple months later than the other Colgin 2006s as the team felt that the tannins needed a bit more polishing.

Subtle aromas of licorice, mint, spearmint, and dark fruits. Full bodied and powerful with a Pauillac character of gorgeous currant bush and mint. This needs some time; so don't touch this until 2015.
Tight and herbal, with gritty tannins, but also a deep, rich concentration of earthy currant, sage and savory berry flavors. Holds onto its tannic muscle through the finish. Needs aeration. (JL)
