Colgin IX Syrah 2007
The 2007 IX Estate Syrah boasts the most complex and concentrated aromatics we've ever experienced in our syrah. This wine was so exciting in the making. As soon as the grapes were put into their open-top tanks, the juice became instantly black. Once the fermentation began, the wines formed tantalizing aromas that have since carried through to the bottle. Thanks to the cool weather that led up to the picking, the wine is very fresh and very expressive. As I taste it before release, a beautiful perfume of floral and spice leaps from the glass. Darker notes of cured meats, cracked pepper, black olive, and jerky soon follow, along with the telltale notes of the IX Estate of wild sage, bay laurel and clay mineral. The unctuous tannins coat the palate while the savory flavors bring a succulent quality to the wine through to the finish. The 2007 Syrah has the freshness and approachability to drink near term, yet the dense flavors, rich structure and natural acidity will allow the wine to evolve beautifully for 15 years or more.
95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There are 475 cases of the 2007 IX Syrah Estate, which offers up flowery, roasted meat, balsamic, tar, and blackberry characteristics in a full-bodied format. The wine reveals sweet tannin, and layers of fruit, including a note of lavender that emerges as the wine sits in the glass. It should drink well for a decade.
