We are a small, family winery in the heart of the Napa Valley founded in 1972. We specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot. Burgess Cellars, located on the slopes of Howell Mountain in Napa Valley, focuses on creating exceptional, hand-crafted estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah. Burgess traces its origins to an original winery on the property in the 1880's. Since 1972, Napa Valley pioneer Tom Burgess and his family have followed the belief that it is vital to grow only those varietals ideally suited to a particular vineyard's soil composition, sun and wind exposure, and overall micro-climate. The French refer to this as "terroir," and it certainly explains the consistent aromas and flavors found in the hillside Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the years three distinct estate vineyard sites have been cultivated and nurtured to create the very best handcrafted wines. The Burgess flagship wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, thrives on the western slopes of Howell Mountain near the winery; Merlot is ideally suited to the Triere Vineyard on the Napa Valley floor in the Oak Knoll AVA just south of Yountville; Syrah is perfectly matched to conditions in the estate vineyard site on the eastern slope of Howell Mountain. Burgess is somewhat unique in the Napa Valley today, in that it is truly a family-owned winery which has employed the same gifted winemaker, Bill Sorenson, since the winery's re-birth in 1972.

Dark, intense and well-oaked, with spicy cedary flavors leading to a core of currant and black cherry. Tightly wound and best to cellar short-term; a new reserve-style wine. Best from 2002 through 2012. 800 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1997 Burgess Cellars Enveiere 750ml

The tightly focused currant, berry, coffee, herb, chocolate and cedar flavors of this Napa Cab are ripe and concentrated, holding their richness on the long finish. Drink now through 2008. 8,000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Burgess Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection 750ml

Strikes a nice balance between ripe, spicy, supple Cabernet fruit and light oak shadings. The result is elegant and complex. Should benefit from short- term cellaring; try after 1998.

A savory style, with complex cedar, dried berry and currant, mineral, tobacco and sage flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, ending with firm, minerally tannins. Drink now through 2019.
