International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($125; bottled in June of 2004) Good medium ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, dark chocolate, bacon fat and licorice; distinctly wild. A huge, seamless syrah with compelling liqueur-like sweetness and lushness of texture yet almost magically firm and fresh. This saturates the palate with flavor. A great California syrah with perfectly integrated tannic spine. The pH is around 4, but the wine has plenty of life: my sample was even more impressive with dinner 24 hours after I first tasted it.

(note is taken from 2/05) There are 400+ cases of Kongsgaard's distinctive Syrah. Aged in 50% new French oak, it is fashioned from a special parcel of Hudson Vineyard vines planted in volcanic soils. The last three vintages have all been extraordinary, with perhaps the 2001 Syrah Hudson Vineyard my overall favorite. However, the 2002 is close in quality. The wine possesses striking blackberry, ground pepper, fried bacon fat, barbecue spice, and underbrush/composty characteristics that are also meaty and primordial. The volcanic soils may give this wine a more smoky, scorched, meaty character than other Northern California Syrahs. As the wine sits in the glass, notes of melted licorice also emerge. The 2002 is extremely layered and long. This cuvee always benefits from 2-3 hours of decanting, and a young vintage might even be better if decanted 24 hours in advance. This wine should easily last 10-15 years. It is unquestionably the most singular expression of Syrah in Northern California. All of Kongsgaard's wines are sold via a mailing list ...
