Kongsgaard Syrah Napa Valley Hudson Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Robert Parker: 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. Drink it during its first decade of life. (Dec 2009)

Fifth-generation Napa natives John and Maggy Kongsgaard produce The Judge, Chardonnay, VioRous, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Shy-bearing vineyards and traditional low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful, graceful wines — 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 the Napa 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. Read less

A huge, massive force, the 2007 Syrah Hudson Vineyard combines chocolate, creme de cassis, blackberries, soy, beef jerky, smoked game, and Peking duck characteristics in its thick, juicy personality. Full-bodied with amazing purity and a stunning fin... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2007 Kongsgaard Syrah Hudson Vineyard 750ml
