The Syrah 2018 Kongsgaard Napa Valley hails from 2.7 acres on the Hudson ranch in Carneros where the mineral rich soil and the coastal climate bring the most intense qualities of Syrah into focus: classic aromas of black pepper, smoked meat, orange peel and rose petals; juicy vibrant flavors; and an intense core of silky tannin.  Summing up his vertical tasting, Stephen Tanzer concluded that Kongsgaard Syrah is “arguably California’s greatest single Syrah bottling.” 375 cases produced.

Ratings & Reviews

97-99+ - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Syrah Hudson Vineyard barrel sample explodes form the glass with an incredible array of classic Syrah notes: black cherries, black plums, blackberries and licorice with hints of garrigue, tar, bouquet garni and bacon fat. Full-bodied, the palate is equally atomic, with bags of expressive black fruits and meaty/peppery hints framed by ripe, rounded tannins, finishing long, refreshing and oh-so-spicy." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (November 2019)

97 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Syrah Hudson Vineyards is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Sleek and silky to the core, the 2018 possesses exceptional balance and tons of pedigree. In 2018, the Syrah is all primary fruit, while the varietal savory notes, that are typical of this wine, have not emerged yet." Antonio Galloni (January 2020)
