Burgess Cellars Vertical Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting
Held on Sat., April 14th, 2007
Wines Tasted: Cabernet Sauvignon, Library Selection, *1982, 1987, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002
Plus a 1976 Petite Syrah
All the wines were in pristine condition and all tasted well, even the very old vintages.
My personal favorite was the 1987 Cab. Sauv.. I belive it was at it's peak now. The 1982 was a little tired and thin but still drinkable.
After the musty nose on the 1976 Petite Syrah blew off, you were left with lovely prune and rasin flavors.
The tasters included: Al & Sharon Decker, Laura Malloy, Michele Heaton, Francis & Cristina Rammaccotti, David & Allison Ritt-Rodgers,
Kathy Brewster, Chris Scheid, Doug Breuneger, John Arters, Dick Demchak, Harry Kissig and of course Valerie and myself.
