Beautiful nose that shows a bit thin on the palate for what the nose promised. Still delicious and well integrated.

Coffee beans, slight menthol, a little bit of leather and a decent amount of spice. Very impressive and highly distinct. Really pleasurable

1996 Colgin Herb Lamb CS. Dinner at Tap w S&L DiM and P&S Co. Super interesting- big, rich notes of salty, meaty olives and briny olive juice. Had not had something quite like this before and none of us had ever drunk this vintage before either.

1996 Colgin Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet. Drank at dinner at Farmstead during dinner a K, A&S, and Doc. Smelled strongly of banana on the nose initially, but it mellowed out and came around.
