Burgess Cabernet Sauvignon 2007




The Burgess Cellars' hillside vineyards are on the steep slopes of Howell Mountain. The various exposures result in grapes that complement one another and build a complex, delicious wine. Soils range from volcanic ash to rocky marine sediments, this, combined with mature vines and skilled wine making give us a complex and elegant wine. The wine shows off dense Cabernet Sauvignon character accented with vanilla, balancing spices and toasty oak from traditional barrel aging.

Wine EnthusiastHere's a good Cabernet for drinking now and over the next five years. It shows classically ripe, smooth Napa tannins that frame exuberant flavors of blackberries, black cherries and cassis. Give it a good long decant before serving.

Wine SpectatorA 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. 6,200 cases made.
