99 points - limited Limited Colgin Syrah available. 99 Points Robert Parker: "Very deep garnet-purple, the 2015 IX Syrah Estate opens with intense crushed black cherries, black plums and mulberries with underlying black pepper, peppered salami, violets and chocolate box plus a lovely star anise and sandalwood waft. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully soft and sexy, it gives tons of perfumed black fruit and spice cake layers, finishing very long.... ...Colgin’s magnificent 20-acre vineyard planted at an elevation of 1,150 feet on volcanic soils is supplemented by their 4-acre parcel just north of St. Helena called Tychson Hill, which will ultimately grow to 5.5 acres. The 2014s were reviewed in Issue 227, but some notes on their magnificent 2015s seemed to be in order. Their 2015s may turn out to be one of their two or three finest vintages to date. They are showing incredibly well from cask and this vintage is full of succulent, incredibly ripe, pure fruit. Their vineyards have certainly excelled."
