John Gilman

The 1985 Burgess Cellars cabernet sauvignon is a very respectable example of the vintage. The wine comes in listed at an even thirteen percent alcohol. ...the wine is alive and well, offering up a refined nose of cassis, dark berries, cigar smoke, chipotles, a good base of soil and a gentle framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fairly complex, with a good core and soil signature, still a bit of backend tannin and a long, focused and very nicely balanced finish. This is good juice and I would love to cross paths with another bottle one day, just to see if the crumbly cork affected the wine at all.  (5/2021)
