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; Read more »

  • Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection 2001

    Snoothrank:

    The wine has a deep violet color, with a good bit of opacity, and a brighter ruby along the edges. The nose is an interesting combination of leather, ripe plum bordering on prune, mint and an earthy, barnyard sort of smell. The taste is very fruit forward, with a burst of ripe cherries and blackberries that settle into some cedar and Asian spi... Read More

  • We I am reading wine reviews about wines that require cellering I am not sure which dateyou consider when the writer says this wine could use 2-5 years in the cellar. Is it from the date of the vintage or is it from the date of the review? I always thought it was the date of the vintage but others have said it is the date of the review. So I am ... Read More
