Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

($150; 50% new oak) Full medium ruby. Smoked meat and gunflint on the nose; reminded me of a serious Hermitage. Then dense and brooding in the mouth, with a distinctly wild quality to its intense flavors of raspberry, smoked bacon and gravel. For all its size, this boasts terrific lift and grip, and an extravagant personality. Carrying 15% alcohol with a pH of 3.9. It's also the only wine in the cellar that isn't aged in essentially 100% new oak.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Aromas of tapenade, bacon fat, and scorched earth emerge from the 2007 Syrah Hudson Vineyard. The complex aromatics are followed by rich, thick flavors with elegance as well as good definition. There is slightly more minerality apparent in this full-bodied 2007 than in the 2008.

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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
