2012 Burgess "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. 93 Points Antonio Galloni Vinous. Wine Enthusiast 90 Points Cellar Selection: "From a high perch on Howell Mountain, this producer has blended 92% Cabernet Sauvignon with 8% Petit Verdot-making for a darkly colored, robust wine. Thick, chalky tannins envelop plum, cassis and dark chocolate. Drink now through 2020."


93 Points Antonio Galloni Vinous - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Burgess hits the palate with an exotic concoction of dark fruit, pencil shavings, spices, tobacco, cedar, savory herbs, licorice and lavender. Dark and imposing, the 2012 possesses superb richness, with plenty of Howell Mountain character and intensity. The silkiness of the vintage has softened some of the contours, but this remains a distinctly savory and mineral-inflected Cabernet with tons of hillside character. Today, the 2012 comes across as tightly wound and in need of further cellaring, so readers should not be in any rush to open bottles. This distinctly old-school leaning Cabernet will also thrill readers seeking value, as it delivers superb quality and personality for the money. The Burgess family has made distinctive Cabernets from their estate vineyard at the base of Howell Mountain since the early 1970s. I have not tasted these wines in a few years, but found quite a bit to like in the 2012."
