From the use of natural yeast & modest oaking, extended sur lee aging and bottling without filtration and fining, John Kongsgaard's wine making style favors minimal intervention. The resulting wine has great varietal integrity, flavor intensity, complexity and structure -an expression of the grape rather than the ego of the winemaker.

Wine Spectator Ripe, rich and buttery, with layers of spicy fig, peach pit and caramel notes from toasty oak. Richness carries through the finish. Drink now through 2005. 800 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastVery ripe tropical fruits and appealing pear, apple and spice notes show well in this nicely balanced wine. Good acidity plays a solid supporting role here. The toasty oak holds the almost overripe fruit in check-it's strong from the mid palate through the handsome butter-and-apple finish.
