($175) Bright greenish-yellow. Reticent aromas of citrus peel and butterscotch, plus a whiff of exotic fruits. Dense, dry and light on its feet, with strong rocky and saline elements that give the wine more lift and aromatic persistence than the 2006 Napa bottling. Complex, classic and very long. Kongsgaard describes the Judge as a tannic vineyard. "The wine's Chablis-like acidity is really partly a function of the tannins," he explained, adding that he uses most Damy barrels (100% new) for their subtlety.Author: Stephen Tanzer
