Kongsgaard The Fimasaurus 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 The Fimasaurus Proprietary Red Blend (only 100 cases produced) struck me as a Napa Valley version of the 2003 Château Montrose from St.-Estèphe. Abundant minerality, deep, cedary blackcurrant fruit, licorice and whiffs of vanilla and unsmoked cigar tobacco are present in this fabulous, full-bodied stunner. It should age effortlessly for two decades or more.
Wine SpectatorBuilt to cellar, this is young, dense and tight, with a trim yet rich mix of savory Cabernet flavors of gravel, graphite, licorice and dried herb. Ends with dusty, loamy tannins and a hint of mocha. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2030. 90 cases made.
