Colgin IX Estate Syrah

100 Point - 2013 Colgin IX Estate Syrah

"My favorite Syrah from Northern California, ever"
Jeb Dunnuck, 100 points Colgin Cellars 2013 IX Estate Syrah

A lifelong love of wines from the Rhone inspired Colgin to plant clones from Cote-Rotie and Hermitage in the rocky, volcanic soil of IX Estate.
The resulting wine is often a dead-ringer for a great Northern Rhone and regarded as some of the most compelling and singular Syrah’s made in California.

"The IX Estate is as close to a viticultural nirvana as I have ever seen."
Robert Parker - the Wine Advocate

"This is an incredible lineup of wines from Ann Colgin, her winemaker Allison Tauziet and Bordeaux winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. Of course, they have David Abreu, the superstar of viticulturalists, looking after their vineyards which, based on those I’ve seen at Tychson Hill and the IX Estate, are meticulously and fastidiously maintained as well as drop-dead beautiful terroirs. The 2013s had just been bottled, so I was blown away by how amazingly they performed. Of course, 2012 was a great vintage, but 2013, as I’ve already indicated, is probably the finest vintage for Bordeaux varietals I’ve ever tasted in my 37 years of experience in Napa Valley." writes Robert Parker October 2015.

Critical Acclaim:

2013 Colgin IX Estate Syrah | Jeb Dunnuck 100

"The 2013 Syrah IX Estate is probably my favorite Syrah from northern California, ever. Offering a heavenly bouquet of crème de cassis, blueberries, graphite, pepper, and spring flowers, it has that rare mix of concentration and richness paired with incredible purity, elegance, and class. With full-bodied richness, a fresh, vibrant, yet super-concentrated style, and building structure, give bottles another 2-3 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy over the following two decades." JD Dec 2017

2010 Colgin IX Estate Red | Robert Parker 100

"The 2010 IX Estate is another perfect wine. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of blueberries, cassis, pen ink, asphalt, licorice and subtle oak. Full-bodied and rich but light on its feet, this spectacular effort was created from a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. Enjoy this profound wine over the next 25+ years." RP Oct 2013

2012 Colgin IX Estate Syrah | Robert Parker 98

"The 2012 IX Syrah Estate blew me away, and I've said many times that it always tastes as if it's co-fermented with Viognier, but it is always 100% Syrah. It has a honeysuckle, flowery, almost white/peachy component in the blackberry and meaty aromatics that always throw me off. The wine is aged in small oak, but the oak is concealed by the lavish amount of fruit, glycerin and extract. This is a super-intense, massive, yet elegant and complex Syrah that should drink well for 10-15 years." RP Oct 2015
