Colgin 2017 Tychson Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
98 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - The berries at Tychson Hill vineyard were very small in 2017. “This wine totally required baby steps with the extraction,” said winemaker Allison Tauziet. Very deep purple-black in color, the Colgin 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard leaps from the glass with vibrant black cherries, warm blackberries and blackcurrant scents with hints of violets, dark chocolate, lavender and camphor plus a fragrant waft of rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied, the structure is taut, restraining all the tightly packed, energetic black fruit layers, with a wonderfully fine-grained texture and bags of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. Still very tightly wound, this one needs time, but it should handsomely reward patience.
98 Points Jeb Dunnuck - Starting out, the Colgin 2017 Tychson Hill is gorgeous, revealing a saturated purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of blackcurrants, ground herbs, chocolate, toasted bread, and subtle yet high class oak. Full-bodied, beautifully textured, and flawlessly balanced on the palate, it has silky tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a big finish. This is a backward, primordial beauty that’s going to need 4-5 years of bottle age yet shine for 30 years or more.
“Tychson Hill” reflects a deeper, darker element in the 2017 vintage, a compelling expression of the site with delicious flavors of black cherry, black currant, and molten chocolate. With a sense of purity and a feeling of clarity, the 2017 “Tychson Hill” unfolds with intricacy across the palate. The texture is supported by greater tannins with a dusted cocoa sensation. The balance between sweet ripe tannins and a crystalline acidity give the wine a calculated feeling of precision. These attributes ensure the 2017 “Tychson Hill” has an extended ability to age.
