Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection 2005
CABERNET SAUVIGNON Napa ValleyVintage:2005Appellation:Napa Valley, CaliforniaVineyard location:Burgess Winery Vineyard - St. HelenaGrape Variety:80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec Winemaking data:Alcohol 14.4%; pH 3.69; T.A. 0.50; 100% Malolactic FermentationDescription: 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.
Great structure and showful, this has the crème de cassis and kirsch notes I enjoy with a full mouth feel that is plush, elegant and abrupt all at the same time. A great value in today’s world of runaway pricing. A great QPR and rated as such.
I love this wine for the price. It is a great Napa Cabernet in the mid to high 20s. That deep beautiful Napa red color is evident right away. The finish is what i love about this wine, stays on your tongue for a while. Delicious.
External Reviews for Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection
Deep red in the glass with aromas of red licorice and hibiscus tea, along with subtle hints of oak and spice that slowly give way to a palate of red cherry, cola and crushed black raspberries.This wine has excellent mouthfeel and balance with a supple finish that displays just a hint of cedary oak.
