Part 2 of 3 from a tasting with Burgess Cellars.
-On the nose, dark fruit...smells of cocoa powder.
-Even for its young age, this tastes really well now. Couple more years away will do wonders, but AGalloni already gave this Howell Mountain cab a 93...

Jammy goodness! Blackberry pie and cassis. Raspberry preserves and a@little smoke. Soft but intense. Really nice with grilled pork chops

Shay @Shay Aldriedge I listen to you because I believe. So thank you. Bought this on your review. And enjoyed. Young yes but really smooth cab. Nice, black cherries, some pepper and spices.

Been a while since I had Burgess, but it was just like I remembered it! Nose filled with dark cherries, blueberries, and tobacco. A nice boldness engulfed the palate with an excellent balance of fruit, smoke, and spice. The finish however was the best part! Silky smooth and very Merlot/Bordeaux like. You will never guess it has 14.5% OH. Definitely give this guy some air and it has many years left in it. Excellent Value!!

The smooth smell leads you into a very smooth earthy taste. Strong robust flavor but not overbearing for my pallet. It went excellent with Filet Mignon. I highly recommend

Hints of earth and minerals, with deep dark plum fruit and mushrooms. Very nice.

Giving this a 9 on account of its elegance alone. Floral nose. Soft yet powerful fruit. Great mouthfeel. Stands out by holding back. Overall "very nice".
