This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 120 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family.
Your Premiere Napa Valley wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from esteemed Winery Ranch Block 11 at Burgess Cellars. Also known as the Sunset Slope due to its perfect vantage point of the evening sunsets over the Mayacamas Mountains, this vineyard was originally established in 1885. Harvested at the peak of perfection, Block 11 has all the characteristics of a western-facing hillside vineyard on Howell Mountain: inky, black fruit and cassis flavors and violet frangrance with the perfect balance of sweet French oak and refined tannins. This legendary wine is sure to be a stunner for years to come.

Winemaker, Burgess Cellars
I fell into winemaking by accident, and what a happy accident it has become! As a winemaker, I've been fortunate to work with some of the best fruit in the valley ranging from the beautiful hillsides of Howell Mountain to the fabulous valley floor vines in Rutherford and beyond. I've had the pleasure of working with some of the finest winemakers that have helped shape and form my winemaking philosophies and techniques. I love the challenge that each vintage brings, and taking what Mother Natures gives us to create elegant, world-renowned wines.
