2009 Kongsgaard "The Fimasaurus" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1271940 94 points Vinous

 A new wine this year, the 2009 The Fimasaurus is rich, layered and exceptionally polished. Dark blue/black fruits, smoke, licorice, menthol, melted road tar and mocha all flesh out in the glass. Today, The Fimasaurus is all about textural depth and layers of flavors, all beautifully woven together. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. (AG)  (11/2013)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2009 The Fimasaurus cuts a larger swath across the palate and seems to have more spice, clove, and wood seasonings than the other cuvees, while the 2011 is very up-front, charming, medium-bodied, aromatic, spicy and round. (RP)  (10/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Aromas of ripe dark berry, black licorice, mocha, charcoal and smoky oak give this a rich mouthfeel. The fruit is sweet and showy, ending with pleasantly chewy tannins and great length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. (JL)  (7/2014)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
