94 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2004
($75; a 73/27 blend) Bright aromas of citrus and peach, with a piquant cyanic bitterness. Very dry and very fresh, with a tactile, phenolic quality that is supported by-or perhaps the result of-the wine's intense peach, apricot and mineral flavors. The structure here comes from rocks and tannins, notes Kongsgaard, not acidity. Finishes firm and very long. At least as good as the 2001 version. Serve this with scallops, lobster bisque or fish soup in general, he suggests. Kongsgaard originally found that the viognier from this hilltop site was too floral and the roussanne too minerally, earthy and gnarly, so he began by blending the two varieties. Pretty soon he was co-fermenting them, and now he actually picks the two varieties together.
