Tychson Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
The elegant, pure, stylish 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard offers stunning aromas of kirsch, red and black currants, cedarwood and vanillin. Tasting like a Napa version of Leoville Las Cases, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, Bordeaux-like effort with beautiful elegance, finesse and harmony. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years. When Colgin’s 2003s were made, winemaker Mark Aubert was working with Bordeaux consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud. Both remember 2003 as a year of small yields with a wet spring, a moderate summer, and huge heat spikes during the third week of September.
