Winemaker Notes

The 2013 "IX Estate" possesses all the aromas one can attain from this heralded vineyard, seemingly a hypothetical blend of our greatest vintages. This captivating wine seduces you with its concentration of flavors, but beneath the surface we find a wine brimming with nuance. With a nose of sweet floral blossoms and bouquet garni the wine envelops the senses. Vibrant notes of licorice, dark fruit and botanicals meld together with flavors of pure wet mineral and iron. I love the way this vintage weaves its classic Cabernet Sauvignon crème de cassis and dark cherry flavors together with its terroir, like the intoxicating notes of sage oil and juniper. The opulence on the nose carries through onto the palate where it builds smooth, supple layers of tannin. The succulent and savory texture builds to a long, rich finish. Though the 2013 vintage is compelling upon release, the power, breadth and depth will most certainly age for a generation- if you let it.

Blend: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another perfect wine from Ann Colgin and her winemaking team is the 2013 IX Proprietary Red Estate, a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. An absolutely compelling wine, with notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis, it has the full smorgasbord of black and blue fruits, wonderfully integrated, toasty oak, acidity and tannin, a floral note that is unmistakable, and great richness, density and purity. It is an utterly exceptional wine and a tribute to not only a great vineyard, but impeccable winemaking and upbringing. It should drink well for 30+ years as well.

James Suckling
The aromas to this are perfect with black truffle, sage, blueberry and wet earth. Changes all the time. Full body with lots of richness and fruit. The intensity is electric. Chewy tannins yet polished and silky. It lasts for minutes on the palate. A joy to taste (drink) now but it's made for long-term aging.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A powerful expression of rich, detailed, polished Cabernet, with layer upon layer of blackberry, licorice, kirsch, graphite and savory herb flavors. Impeccably balanced and nuanced, authoritative and refined in the same sip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2019 through 2025.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
