Colgin Cellars Proprietary Red 'Cariad' Napa Valley 2014
Ann Colgin’s cult Cabernets are a gorgeous addition to any Napa aficionado’s cellar. The 2014 ‘Cariad’ is plush and luscious, with bright, lively fruit and an overall intense palate. Fruit comes from a few of David Abreu’s vineyards, focused on Madrona Ranch for most of the assemblage. Full-bodied, ripe, and mouth-filling. Drink now, or age for the next decade.
Loamy-soiled, north-south valley reaching from the hot springs of Calistoga to the San Francisco Bay. It’s home to world-beating Cabernet Sauvignon, among other wines, and the American answer to Bordeaux.
