Winemaker Notes

Appearance: A bright greenish yellow color, with golden tinges. Bright. Aroma: A fruity aroma with a unique complexity where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting slight nuances of ripe apple. Palate: A distinct syrup-like taste and sweet character giving an intense, pleasurable sensation. A balanced, rounded structure finish making it particularly sweet.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Burgans Albarino is a perennial Best Buy in these pages. The 2010 Burgans Albarino delivers notes of lemon, peach, mineral, and a hint of tropical fruit aromas. Round, ripe, and savory with a slightly exotic personality, it is a nicely textured effort that over-delivers in a big way. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Wine Enthusiast
Simply delicious white wine with lip-smacking freshness, bright peach and apple flavors, and clarity from the front to back. It's a little leesy but a lot more crisp and oceanic, with well-cut body and mild citrus undertones throughout.

Burgans, , Spain
Burgans
The Burgans estate is located in the Rias-Baixas region in Spain’s northwest corner in the region of Galicia. The region of Rias-Baixas is heavily influenced by the Atlantic, with high levels of rainfall and relative humidity. Temperatures are quite moderate and the region is extremely fertile, with miles and miles of green rolling hills. The vineyards are planted on these gently rolling hills on dark, humid soil which sits over granitic, and in some places, schist soils. Martin Codax is located in the fertile Salnes Valley on the Mont Burgans, for which this wine is named.

Burgans is made at the famous Bodega Martin Codax by Luciano Almoedo, perhaps the biggest advocate of the Albarino varietal in Spain. Luciano was extremely influential in obtaining worldwide recognition for not only the varietal, but also Rias-Baixas, where he was the founder and first leader of the AOC. Today, the Bodega has grown considerably and is known as one of the most progressive in the zone.

Luciano Almoedo remains the winemaker at this prestigious estate, producing pure Albarino bottlings with lovely aromatics and precision. The use of wood is definitively eschewed at the Bodega in order to preserve the natural lift and minerality of the grapes. As such, the wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel with light lees stirring. The wine is blended by Eric Solomon, working in concert with the property, and is bottled in the spring after harvest.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
