2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon •Burgess Estate Vineyards
California: Napa Valley
Almost inky magenta in the glass, with some baked cherry nuances as well.
Bold notes of sweet plum and blackberry greet you initially, trailed by hints of sweet earth, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, dark baking spices, rosemary, and a touch of sage.
A serious Napa Cab. The wine features rich dark fruit flavors of plum, boysenberry, and black currant, which mingle with sweet tobacco leaf, fresh berry bramble, aged cedar wood, clove, anise, espresso bean, and subtle herbal undertones.
Incredibly smooth, with stunning mouth-enveloping flavors. Very well structured, with velvety tannins and a bright, zippy acidity. The finish leaves a delightfully subtle pucker along the edge of the palate.
Seared skirt steak with blistered cherry tomatoes and polenta.
