Written Notes

The 2000 Colgin "Herb Lamb" is the ninth vintage we have produced from this steep, north-facing hillside vineyard. Discover a candied nose, with ripe cherries and a sweet caressing palate that belies ample complexity. The wine is reminiscent of a classic, ripe vintage in Bordeaux, possessing good structure and a long finish with evidence of ripe, integrated tannins. Sweet fruit intermingles with earthiness and floral notes to give the wine captivating aromas.

The 21st Century in the Napa Valley began with an idyllic vintage. A spring and summer free from climatic challenges yielded fruit of exceptional quality. The 2000 vintage was defined by a cool, even growing season throughout, except for a three-day stretch of unusually high temperatures in June. The threat of rain loomed in late August, but the vineyards were spared. Harvest began in mid-September and carried through the third week of October. The wines of the 2000 vintage carry tremendous balance and complexity.

Höchst erstaunlich dieser 2000 Colgin Herb Lamb, der erst mit Geraniol und Pepperoni Aromen ins Glas kam und dann förmlich explodierte. Zeigte immer mehr Kraft, dunkle Beerenfrucht, minzige Fülle und schöne Länge – WT97.
