94-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
Good ruby-red color. Restrained but very pure aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and dark chocolate. Wonderfully rich and deep but bright too, with blue fruit flavors accented by black pepper. This impeccably balanced, very brisk syrah grew creamier in the glass without losing its firm edge. Finishes with noble tannins and a lingering note of licorice. Kongsgaard made just 4 barrels of this elixir in 2011, down from a normal 12, as the rot from the mid-October rains caused him to eliminate 70% of the grapes. In the end, his block at Hudson Vineyards yielded just 2 tons for 2-1/2 acres.
