The 2016 IX Estate Red is utterly fascinating and is another sensational wine from Colgin Cellars that pushes the limits of perfection in this vintage. Displaying striking purity, this red instantly begins to dazzle with its incredibly perfumed aromatics of ripe black and blue fruits, exotic spices, violet florals, graphite, earth and wild sage nuances all emerging from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and beautifully layered with an expansive core of fresh dark fruits that resonate through the wine. It goes on to display a wonderful combination of power and elegance, with a gorgeous polished texture that is enveloping and remarkably pure. This is an absolutely majestic wine from Colgin Cellars that is simply stunning now, yet will go on to have a tremendous future ahead.
