  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    In this style, there's nothing better in California. Serves up a medley of rich, exotic pineapple and tropical fruit flavors that are as broad as they are deep. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors coat the palate and linger, with fig and apricot details adding to the pleasure. Buttery oak folds in nicely.

  • 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.
