2019 Colgin Cellars Tychson Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA

TASTING NOTES
The 2019 “Tychson Hill” exhibits a poetic balance of lively aromatics and minerality that is undeniably compelling. Centered around classic Cabernet Sauvignon flavors, the wine demonstrates a perfect pirouette of dark red berries, cherry pit, melting chocolate, and graphite. Suave layers of silken tannin unfold on the palate, yielding a finish both subtly sweet and savory. Full of textural density though never heavy, the 2019 “Tychson Hill” dances across the palate.

CLIMATIC CONDITIONS
The 2019 growing season paralleled the moderate season of 2018, with several, key elements distinguishing it both at the beginning and the end. An abundance of rainfall came in the winter of 2019 and continued into early May. Vines thrived under such verdant growing conditions. Enhancing the airflow of the vine by spacing out the shoots and adjusting leaves in the late spring was an important yet laborious element for success in 2019. Nature yielded vines with an abundant crop, a result of the extra soil moisture and nutrients. We adjusted crop size using strict criteria for cluster thinning to bring the vines into balance.

A peaceful summer ensued, leading us into ideal ripening conditions throughout September. In early October, a sequence of very cold nights downshifted the pace of ripening, just as the days were shortening. Harvest took place during the middle two weeks of October. The cold nights and cooler days captured freshness, infusing intensity of both flavor and perfume into the wines. Seamless tannins and a strikingly gliding texture define the wines of the 2019 vintage. Though not lacking for structure, the wines are complete in their youth, making for undeniable, immediate enjoyment. Patience in the cellar will only highlight their soaring aromatics, as the palpable fruit integrates with the more subtle savory character.

Starting with the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill, this beauty offers a wonderful array of blue fruits, crème de cassis, graphite, new leather, and spice. Incredibly aromatic and already complex, it’s full-bodied on the palate and has silky yet substantial tannins, perfect balance, and a great finish. Just gorgeous in every way, this savory, spicy, layered 2019 already offers pleasure yet will evolve for 25+ years if properly stored.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The “home” vineyard of Ann Colgin and Joe Wender, Tychson Hill has emerged as one of St. Helena/Napa’s most singular, evocative vineyards. Only about six acres in total, sloped and with a northern aspect, the major section of the vineyard was planted in 1997 to heritage clones of Cabernet Sauvignon with a smaller section planted in 2014. Deep purple-black colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill Vineyard comes skipping out of the glass with bright, vibrant scents of black and red cherries, boysenberries and wild blueberries, plus suggestions of violets, dark chocolate, licorice and fertile loam. Full-bodied, rich and oh so velvety, the palate is laden with layer upon layer of red, black and blue fruits spiked with tons of spicy accents and an epically long, earthy finish. The interplay of spine-tingling energy and decadent richness here is simply mind-blowing. Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Issue date: October 2021, Drinking window:2024 - 2064.

The 2019 Cabernet Souvignon Tychson Hill is a supremely elegant wine that marries intensity, richness and vibrancy. All the best elements of this St. Helena site come together in a statuesque Cabernet that dazzles right out of the gate. Bright red-toned fruit, spice and lifted floral accents develop in the glass. The 2019 is naturally quite young, but it has a great future. In recent years, the Tychson Hill has shown more finesse in its tannins as a young wine than in the past, which means it needs less cellaring, never a bod thing. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out the blend. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni, Issue date: October 2021, Drinking window: 2027 - 2044.
