Wow! The color tells alot about this wine. What you see is what you're getting. This is a giant wine in every way but not at all overripe or overdone. The florals just burst out of the glass almost immediately. Violets, lavender and then ultra dark fruit, smoke and pepper. The palate is giant but this wine is all about texture. So smooth with soft, sweet tannins. Velvet baby! Big pepper again with beef blood and dark, DARK cherry. The cherry for me is the differentiator between Napa syrahs and those from the Central cost. I often get the same from Araujo's syrahs. Beautiful effort and likely the best syrah from Kongsgaard to date. Magnifico!!
