Producer Notes

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... More »

Source International Wine Cellar
Issue Issue 144

($75; bottled in June of 2008) More exotic and more tropical on the nose than the 2007, hinting at butterscotch and honeyed high tones. Fat and sweet, but with a slightly bitter edge to its honeyed flavor. Less fleshy and fruity than the 2007, and currently conveying less minerality too. Not showing the fruit it displayed from barrel a year ago: is this in a dumb stage?

The 2006 Chardonnay reveals brawny orange marmalade, white peach, and popcorn notes with notions of oak and damp earth in the background. Drink it over the next several years as I am suspect of the aging potential of these Chardonnays.

Full body of ripe peach and papaya flavors, hints of cinnamon, pear - exotic rather than classic. Heavy on the finish, yet lively and cleansing. Light gold rich color and a nose of vanilla bean. Definitely an attention grabber. Cheers!

Initially somewhat reticent on the nose showing buttered popcorn and dill. Honey, melon and fig emerging. Great focus and acidity and length on the palate. Touch of fennel. Massive finish. Crushed stone, vanilla, cantaloupe and lemon on the nose. Concentrated and rich but still nuanced and balanced. Pineapple and honey. Oily lemon and a touch of egg custard.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
