"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is outrageously beautiful. Savory, dense and earthy with a distinctly Old World sense of structure, the 2017 is shaping up to be a real gem. In a vintage in which so many wines are opulent, Kongsgaard's Cabernet Sauvignon is unusually tannic and brooding in feel, even though the blend incorporates 20% Merlot."

"A barrel sample, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with red and black currants, black cherries and black raspberries with hints of roses and lilacs plus notes of cinnamon stick and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins, it has a good intensity and red and black fruit characters and a savory finish"
"Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Kongsgaard Napa Valleyis a regal wine of grand proportions. The aromatic layers of graphite, cedar, and dark chocolate anticipate the great concentration of mineral and fruit flavors. The long, luxurious finish is the result of our meticulous tannin extraction during fermentation and maceration—the crucial period of the vinification when the wine’s magnificent architecture is formed. The dense and silky structure will propel this powerful wine through its long life. Antonio Galloni found the 2017 Cabernet “outrageously beautiful” with “a distinctly Old-World sense of structure.” These vines occupy the warm, west-facing slope of our vineyard on the eastern rim of Napa Valley." - Winery
