Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Compared to the Beringer wine above, which sat next to this one in our blind tasting, this is a very different 85-pointer. This wine, reflective of the Burgess style, is far more structured and thus has less immediacy, but it is every bit as useful in its own way. Rather than being served casually, it needs to be paired with chunky red meats like butterflied leg of lamb, or better yet, left in the cellar for a few years to soften.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Wine Tasting NotesThe harvest was unique because of warmer-than-normal conditions in the Napa Valley. Because of this, the Merlot berries coming out of the Triere Vineyard were even smaller and more concentrated than usual. Once at the winery, the grapes were rotary fermented to extract the best flavors and aromas, while maintaining the balance of tannins. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels.
