KONGSGAARD SYRAH NAPA '16
KONGSGAARD SYRAH, HUDSON VINEYARD, NAPA VALLEY 2016
The Syrah comes from a volcanic soil patch at Hudson Vineyard. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Syrah Hudson Vineyard--a barrel sample--has earthy notes of tar, asphalt and black soil with a core of black currant juice, blackberry preserves and Indian spices plus a waft of Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, finely crafted and with a firm backbone of rounded tannins, it delivers loads of spice and a good, long finish.
