Cabernet Sauvignon Vignette #13 Burgess Napa Valley 2005

Burgess Napa Valley 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, $28.99-$38.99, 89 points, has a lighter Bordeaux color than the 2005 Supery, but the strong vegetative aroma (Hints of which carry-over onto palate) and overall feel makes these two wines difficult to tell apart in a blind-taste-testing. With just a bit more fruit, the Burgess defines itself, but the price is hard to justify with so many good Cabernet wines available, and lacking great distinction, I'm not inclined to try this one again, at least not until another vintage and a GOOD sale present themselves enticing.
