Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($75) Fairly pale color. Distinctly more exotic and gamey aromas than the very young 2005, offering butterscotch, truffle, earth, baking spices and smoky oak. Then suave, sweet and wonderfully full, with more obvious ripeness and thickness of texture than the '05. This is stuffed with material and finishes very long, broad and sweet. "The 2004 is to drink while the 2005 is to save," comments Kongsgaard.

Golden straw. Meyer lemon flavored limestone boulder, doused in petrol, and wrapped in a honeyed and aloed vanilla bean.

About This Producer


Fifth-generation Napa natives John and Maggy Kongsgaard produce The Judge, Chardonnay, VioRous, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Low yielding vineyards and traditional low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful, graceful wines which are high intensity expressions of vineyard and variety.

The core of their endeavor is the ten-acre vineyard they planted in the late 1970s on a rocky hilltop in southern Napa Valley which has belonged to the Kongsgaard family since the 1920s. In addition to these family acres, they direct the farming under long-term contract on another seven acres in Carneros and three acres near St. Helena. The winery, on the eastern rim of Napa Valley, is a cave drilled into the volcanic rock. Production is limited to what they can make with their own hands.
