Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Sigh. Such a lovely experience: a treat for the senses. 2013 was a magnificent year, and after 9 years this one was really coming together. (Fortunately I have two more of this vintage; I will try to wait because this wine has years of string drinking ahead.)

This is an estate wine, and Steve Burgess manages his property with goats to keep the underbrush cleared. I don’t know if that makes a difference in the taste but I do envy those goats who get to spend their days on that lovely Mount Howell slope.

Lots of people talk about the flavors, and the finesse, and the balance, and the succulence of this wine. It is lush and beautiful but built with a restraint and depth that will make your meal sing: even if, like us, you are serving burgers off the grill. With this wine, it will be a memorable experience.

Enveiere Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

Forgot about this, found it in the cellar, pulled it out on a whim to have with roasted pork tenderloin with a sherry mustard cream sauce. Absolutely divine. — 7 months ago

Signature Donn Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

What a joy to taste well aged, well made Napa Cab. From a tasting of ‘98s from benchmark producers (Phelps, Clos du Val, Burgess) this was a favorite. Soft and velvety texture, very elegant, complex nose, long finish, this wine is what I wish more folks got to experience for the varietal and appellation. There has been a bunch of challenging press lately on Napa and Cab in particular, tasting this will remind us of what we are aiming for in this valley. — 2 months ago

1880 Estate Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2017

I totally understand I opened this before I probably should, but I don’t regret it one but. New World Cab Franc made to absolute perfection. Smell brings a floral, green earth with butter/olive oil. First sip- (pure bliss) blueberry pie and dried lilac. As it sits, you get charred poblano peppers. American Oak really delivers. A truly inspiration wine, with a lot of thought. — a year ago
