This wine is real
Today’s Burgess Cellars 2010 Napa Valley Petite Sirah marks a welcome return to TWS for one of our favorite wineries. This family owned and operated gem of a winery has been one of our top sellers over these past 7+ years, and with good reason: their wines are delicious!
Today’s wine was crafted from fruit grown in the Burgess Estate Vineyard. The Burgess Family gently nurtures each and every row in their namesake vineyard, giving it the upmost care and attention, which results in some amazing fruit come harvest time. The fact that this vineyard is over 130 years old and continues to produce such astounding fruit is a testament to the level of dedication that Burgess brings to their winemaking process.
There is only a handful of cases remaining of today’s wine, so please act fast!
Inky, dark scarlet.
Lively and aromatic, with fresh blackberry and boysenberry abutting allspice, vanilla bean, sweet tobacco leaf, smoky toasted oak, and a touch of fresh mint coming from Howell Mountain fruit.
A serious wine with some seriously deep flavors. Jammy notes of dark plum and blackberry mingle with dark chocolate, freshly tilled earth, smoky aged cigar bar, rosemary, and subtle vanilla.
Very classic in style, this elegant Petite Sirah is driven by structure and lovely grippy tannins. Best decanted.
Ribeye, prepared with a dry herbal rub, and finished with homemade herbal butter.
