Winemaker Notes

The 2003 IX Estate gives new meaning to the word intense! Each component of this cuvee is deeply pitched in both color and aromatics. Perfectly composed and brilliantly defined are the aromatics of fresh red berries, black licorice and ripe black cherries. Across the palate, the mouthfeel is pure richness framed by ripe, supple tannins with a fine acid structure. After nineteen months of barrel aging in 100% new French oak, the wine was racked just once before bottling without fining or filtration. The full bodied tannin of the 2003 IX Estate Red Wine ensure its ability to age gracefully for two decades, while its freshness and complexity make it a beautiful wine to drink near term.

Blend: 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot

Wine Enthusiast
From the winery's estate vineyard, high up on Pritchard Hill above the Silverado Trail, comes this spectacular Cab-based masterpiece. The color is purple-black, and massively saturated. Very intricate, complex, totally enjoyable, almost perfect. Like a great Pauillac, this monumental wine announces cassis, blackberry, cigar box, pencil lead, spice and cedar flavors that go on and on. Very tannic, but so beautiful, and amazingly rich. Decant if you're drinking now, or open anytime through 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2003 IX Estate Proprietary Red is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from their steep hillside vineyards. The youngest, tightest, most masculine wine of this quartet, it will benefit from another 5-6 years of cellaring and should have 25 years of life ahead of it. This impressive, blue/purple-colored 2003 behaves more like a 4- to 5-year-old wine than one that is a decade old. It is just beginning to strut its full potential. There is a roasted meaty character to this beauty, along with plenty of cassis, blackberries, blueberries, incense and spring flower notes. It admirably reveals the great terroir Ann Colgin and her husband, Joe Wender, have unlocked high above Lake Hennessey. 96+
