Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 vintage Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet is a wonderfully aromatic wine. The wine is laced with a beautiful gravelly note, as well as an element of graphite. Feminine aromas of honeysuckle, perfume and talc leap from the glass, followed by darker notes of charcoal smoke, wet stone and barbecue spices. On the palate, the wine has a deliciously round and plush entry. There is great finesse to the tannin, which is quite silky.

Critical Acclaim

"From Colgin’s first-growth quality estate vineyard, Tychson Hill, located north of St. Helena, on the western slopes, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard is performing far better out of bottle than it did from cask. An extraordinary bouquet of flowers, cedar, tobacco leaf, black currants, blueberries, chocolate, and scorched earth scents is followed by a wine of prodigious concentration, purity, depth, and sweet tannins. An amazing effort for this vintage, it is a compelling bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. "

"Good saturated ruby. Deep, brooding nose offers superripe scents of plum, mocha, smoked meat and dark chocolate, all lifted by a floral nuance. Wonderfully sweet and lush, showing slightly less clarity of flavor and refinement today than the Herb Lamb but even greater pliancy of texture. Finishes very long and sweet, with the ripe tannins thoroughly supported by mid-palate stuffing. This seemed to firm up in the glass as its underlying minerality made itself felt. "
94 Points

"A rich, savory style, with complex currant, wild berry, cedar, herb and spice flavors, shaded by toasty oak. Full-bodied and tightly wound, structured and persistent, ending with firm tannins and a minerally edge. Best from 2010 through 2017. 250 cases made."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
