Burgess Cellars

Haymaker TKO

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

10 cases produced

Highlights

  • Small but mighty 0.8-acre block of Haymaker Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is tiny, but packs a punch
  • Aged in French oak for 20 months in our original stone winery that dates back to the 1870s
  • Showcases the complexity and richness of mountain fruit, ageable yet approachable when young
  • Burgess Cellars is a second-generation winemaking and winegrowing operation

If Cabernet Sauvignon were a boxer, then this wine would work the entire ring with poetic moves and deliver a Haymaker for the TKO! Hailing from our smallest block at the Haymaker vineyard, “Haymaker TKO” is the bantamweight champion of the vineyard that is graceful and powerful. With spirit from its cheering corner man, Petit Verdot, this wine shows strength, depth, velvety smooth tannins, elegance, spirit, and pedigree that is never out shined. Like Rocky training in the barn and snow for the win, our genuine methods are timeless.


Wine Facts

  • Single vineyard wine
  • Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled

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.
