    The 2013 Burgess "Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon is undoubtedly one of the best values in Napa Cabernet at K&L. Consisting of all-estate fruit from the family-owned Burgess property on the east-facing side of Howell Mountain, this wine shows no lack of depth or power. Brimming with dark fruit and spice, this wine has a great deal of structure and a firm, tannic backbone that make it ideal for aging or drinking with a richer meal. 2013 was considered an early, even and excellent vintage in Napa Valley, and this wine reflects that in its balance and drinkability.

    This is a crazy deal for Napa Cabernet from Howell Mountain. Burgess, established in 1972, was one of only a couple dozen wineries in Napa Valley at the time. This winery has a long history with winemaking and it shows in this bottle of Cabernet. The concentration of dark fruits, rustic notes and herbal characters make this red interesting and approachable. On the mid-palate there is some grip but then finishes with fine tannins. This is delicious now, but certainly can age for a decade!

    This fantastic 2013 from the Burgess estate is a great bottle of full bodied, yet dry Napa Cabernet. If you are looking for a dark fruited, powerful mountain cab to go with some man sized rib eyes off the grill, look no further. While most Napa Cabernet in this price range is made from purchased valley floor fruit, this is entirely from the Burgess estate on Howell Mountain. Enjoy some now, and save some for a few years... I just drank a bottle of the 1993 a few months ago and it was still fresh at 24 years old!

    I was incredibly impressed by the Burgess Estate 2013 in our tasting today, in fact it was my favorite out of the 25 California wines we tried. A beautiful showing of deep dark and intense fruit and lovely spice with smooth medium tannins and a long concentrated and intense finish. It's a great example of classic high end Napa Cab from a fantastic vintage, and at this price is a true bargain.
    Top Value!
