Dueling 99pt Scores: Colgin IX Napa Valley Red 2008
Hot off the presses, Colgin IX Estate Napa Valley Red 2008 just scored it's second 99 point score in the October issue of Wine Enthusiast!
Already reviewed by James Suckling, who likened this Colgin IX Napa Red vintage to a great “Modern Vintage of Margaux – with Napa Shine” and we have to agree. The 2008 vintage is all about aromatics and deriving a real sense of place and time just from the nose. As the vines have aged in this iconic estate we're seeing more and more consistency, resulting in great structure and concentration. The proof is all here with not one, but two 99 point scores.
This vintage of Colgin IX Esate Napa Valley Red should not be overlooked for all serious California collectors, this is one of the most compelling 2008 blends we've tasted and the layers of tannin and complexity are here for the long haul.
We have a small allocation of this gem in-stock currently, and considering the minuscule crop in 2008, once we're sold out we won't be getting more – and you can have fun trying to hunt this down at Auction in years to come!
