Burgess Cellars 2014 Hillside Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, powerful and intense. Wild cherry, underbrush, gravel, savory herbs, smoke and earthy notes give the 2014 much of its potent, virile profile. There is plenty to look forward to as the 2014 develops in bottle. This is a lovely wine with classically inspired proportions and plenty of structure."
79% Cabernet Sauvignon • 14% Merlot • 7% Petit Verdot
The Growing Season: The 2014 growing season was marked by kind weather, a few curveballs and an abundant crop. The winter was one of the driest on record, but heavy rains before bud break gave the vines a well timed drink. The dry winter produced berries smaller in size, but more concentrated with flavors, and an earlier than normal harvest showed immediate promise of high quality. Gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice structure and velvety tannins along with chocolate flavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
The Burgess Estate Hillside Vineyard faces west from the side of Howell Mountain and has a slope averaging 22%. The soil is composed of “Tuﬀ” a volcanic ash, allowing the vineyard to drain very well.
Tasting Notes: Gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice structure and velvety tannins along with chocolate ﬂavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
