Colgin, Tychson Hill Vineyard 2019, 750ml [WA 100]
"The “home” vineyard of Ann Colgin and Joe Wender, Tychson Hill has emerged as one of St. Helena/Napa’s most singular, evocative vineyards. Only about six acres in total, sloped and with a northern aspect, the major section of the vineyard was planted in 1997 to heritage clones of Cabernet Sauvignon with a smaller section planted in 2014.
Deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard comes skipping out of the glass with bright, vibrant scents of black and red cherries, boysenberries and wild blueberries, plus suggestions of violets, dark chocolate, licorice and fertile loam. Full-bodied, rich and oh so velvety, the palate is laden with layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits spiked with tons of spicy accents and an epically long, earthy finish. The interplay of spine-tingling energy and decadent richness here is simply mind-blowing."
