Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
This wine was produced from grapes grown on our hillside vineyards--one on the western-side of Howell Mountain and the other on eastern-side of Pope Valley. The vintage of 2005 was a banner year. Heavy rains produced a record quantity of fully-matured fruit. Our wine fans can now enjoy a great synergy of quality as well as quantity from 2005 harvest. Dense, rich flavors of black and red fruits. Incredibly complex, mouth-filling and slides smoothly across the palate. The core of blackberries, cassis and cherry lead to smooth cocoa, vanilla and spice finish. It is a beautiful example of concentrated fruit and integrated tannins. A dynamic,lush wine. A perfect match when served with any grilled or roasted red meat.
External Reviews for Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon
A complex blend of all five red Bordeaux varietals: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. This wine is deep ruby red in color with an enticing aroma of cassis, black cherry, vanilla and cigar box. Medium-full bodied with bright acidity and silky tannins, this classy Cab seduces rather than overpowers with flavors of black cherry, black currant, cedar, olive and chocolate. Aged in French oak, this wine's finish is long and rich with lingering chocolate notes.Our pairing suggestion is to enjoy Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon with a nice steak on the grill.
