Colgin Cariad


2003 Proprietary Red

Napa Valley


The proprietary blend from David Abreu’s Thorevilos and Madrona Ranch vineyards, the 2003 Cariad (520 cases), is made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and the rest primarily Petit Verdot with a touch of Cabernet Franc. This harmonious offering reveals an inky/blue/purple color in addition to sumptuous aromas of new saddle leather, scorched earth, blackberries, cassis, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats. While it suggests a right bank Bordeaux (such as a top-notch St.-Emilion), it is clearly Californian in its ripeness, richness, and overall purity. This beauty can be enjoyed over the next 20-25 years.
