Colgin Cariad Napa Valley Red Blend 2007

Today was an absolutely fantastic Friday hosting at the City Club by @Dan Fitzgerald. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine. Great job Dan! The first of four Colgin’s served blind. Youthful notes abound here. More herbal on the nose when compared to the more fruit driven palate. Mostly a mix of black cherries, pomegranate, rhubarb tart and black pepper spice at the finish. I went back and forth with my guesses from Grenache, to pinot, to Syrah and couldn’t land on one. Delicious right now.

Rough picture, but pure silk on the palate. Tied for WOF with Hillside.

2007’s seemed to get ratings much higher than what I’m finding. I’ve not been impressed to the extent I was expecting with Napa 2007 Cabs. Well, speaking for this wine, it’s just not balanced like I’m used to with the Colgin Cariad. Not sure if time will round out the edges but.....well I guess I shouldn’t care at this point given it’s my last bottle.
