Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator: Top 100 Wines of 2002: #7: 91 Points. BURGESS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection 1999. "Ripe, rich and polished, with a tasty array of complex currant, plum and wild berry flavors that are sharply focused, long and detailed on the finish. Tannins are sufficient for cellaring, yet neatly woven into the texture. Beautifully crafted. Best from 2003 through 2012. 6,200 cases made. (JL)"

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.

A solid mid-valley Cab. Well-ripened Cabernet fruit suggests black currants and blackberries, with rich earthy notes of tobacco and dried herbs. It's dry and velvety in the mouth. Tannins are thick, but negotiable. -S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 Burgess Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection 750ml

Reminiscent of blackberry jam in its deep dark berry appearance, this wine offered the panel strong aromatic hints of raisin, fig, dried mushrooms, and black pepper that seemed to leap out of the glass. The tannins were smooth but firm, possessing a fruit stand of blackberries, rich dark cherry, black plum and inviting tobacco with a slight note of bitter coffee. The full bodied crowd pleaser left with a leisurely stroll of through a spice rack of soft spices and delicate mocha.(Wine Report)Winery NotesThe Enveiere is a dark, deep purple wine with a richness that is very forward in the nose, while multi-faceted layers of spice and fruits linger from the first taste to the incredibly long-lasting finish. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for many years.
