Food Pairings for Kongsgaard Wines Syrah Napa Valley
<strong>Kongsgaard Syrah 2007 Napa Valley </strong>hails from a volcanic hillside vineyard on the Hudson Ranch in the Napa Carneros. The unique blend of rocky soil, unusual in Carneros, and the foggy, cool weather produces what Parker describes as ìone of the most provocative and individualistic Syrahs made in California.î He describes the 2007 as ìa huge, massive force, which combines chocolate, crËme 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 finish.î Tanzer really got the picture on the Syrah, ìKnockout aromas and flavors of black raspberry, mocha, animal fur, licorice and pepper. Suave on entry, then almost shockingly energetic in the middle, combining superb density with an almost magically light touch. This very pure wine delivers outstanding syrah character, and may ultimately give the extraordinary 2005 a run for its money.î <strong>We receieved only 3 bottles of this tasty juice!!!</strong>
