Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage: 2010
Appellation: Napa Valley, California
Vineyard Locations: Burgess Estate Vineyards, Western & Eastern slopes of Howell Mountain
Grape Variety: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot

Winemaking Data: Alcohol 14.5%; pH 3.73; T.A. 0.62 100% Malolactic Fermentation

Harvest Notes:  A challenging vintage due to a later than normal harvest and a cool summer.  The yield was lower in quantity but higher in quality.



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.
