  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($150; with 4% petit verdot) Good deep red-ruby. Ripe, sweet aromas of currant, mocha, truffle, leather and chocolate, plus a whiff of blueberry from the petit verdot. Then broad and sweet but with a firm acid spine for the vintage. Distinctly dark flavors of blueberry, black raspberry and licorice. Finishes with densely packed tannins and excellent persistence. This should evolve very slowly.

    Kongsgaard's finest Cabernet Sauvignon to date is the 2007. Its dense purple color is accompanied by deep cassis, smoke, blackberry, licorice, and roasted meat-like characteristics. Dense and rich with sweet tannin, full-bodied power, and a youthful style, it should evolve for at least 20 years.

    Nice, medium weight Cabernet with blue fruits, cedar, some anise. Decanted for an hour and enjoyed for 90 minutes until the wine started to lose some of its tension and the fruit started to taste a little stewed.

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.
