We are elated to launch the 2018 Burly Cabernets with a Virtual Tasting event!  We have done wine dinners and in-store wine tastings with Hank from Burly for years, and this Covid-style virtual tasting will be heart-warming and memorable.  The perfect way to break in his new vintages!

Hank McCrorie's Burly Wines have a HUGE following in Raleigh, and it's not just because he's a North Carolina native and part time resident.  His Napa Cabernets and Chardonnay are impeccably crafted and delectable.  Hank is full of wonderful stories and is an absolute delight.  We're sure you'll love him as much as you do his wines.

 Purchase one of the Tasting Packs offered below, and we will send you a link to join the Zoom meeting.  Bring your questions! Taste these amazing wines in the comfort of your own home, while learning from the best.

2018 Burly Simpkins Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley) - 

A striking balance of fruit, and a thick viscous mouth feel, the 2018 Burly Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a remarkable wine that will provide years of enjoyment.  Aromas of cassis and black berries meld seamlessly with notes of chocolate, and anise.  The rich, plush mouth feel elegantly transforms into sweetness by supple tannins and lovely oak integration.  Layered, complex, and lingering, a true wine drinking experience. Wonderful now, this wine will however benefit from further bottle ageing reaching its peak in 5 to 7 years but drinkable for 10 years.  The Simpkins Vineyard in the Coombsville area just east of the city of Napa. The vineyard, although staying warm and dry, is generally a little cooler than many Napa Valley vineyards and therefore allows more hang-time for the grapes. This brings greater concentration and layering to the finished wine. The vineyard soil is rocky loam which provides good drainage and low nutrient concentration. Under these stresses the vines work hard to produce a limited amount of fruit. 

2018 Burly Sciandri Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley 

Aromas of dark plum, cassis and anise meld seamlessly with savory dried herbs.  The mouth transforms into raspberry sweetness and a mineral note. This palate coating wine has a great toasted oak long finish. Wonderful now, this wine will however benefit from further bottle ageing reaching its peak in 3 to 6 years but drinkable for 10 years.  The Sciandri family has a special place in Hank McCrorie's heart, and they happen to own some absolutely beautiful Cabernet in Coombsville.  This is Burly's second vintage of Sciandri Cabernet.  The Sciandri Vineyard in the Coombsville area just east of the city of Napa. The 4 acre vineyard, planted with clone 337 has a western exposure that stays cool thru influences of the San Pablo Bay.  This allows for long hang time that usually harvests at the end of October. The soil is well drained rocky hillside, primarily Hambright-Rock outcrop complex and Coombs gravelly loam.

2016 Burly Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley - The best six barrels of the Simpkins Vineyard Cabernet go into the Special Selection.  Chosen by winemaker Massimo Monticelli and Hank McCrorie for exhibiting an extremely plush mouth-feel and darker and stronger aromas.  This is one of Hank's all-time favorite Burly wines.

Black cherry aromas layered with bright fruit notes and oak. Velvety and intense. Aromas of cassis and black berries meld seamlessly with notes of pomegranate, and anise. This is an elegantly structured wine with silkiness through the midpalate and a persistent, juicy finish. Deep, coating tannins ensure that this wine will age beautifully in the cellar. The rich, plush mouth feel elegantly transforms into sweetness by supple tannins and lovely oak integration.  A wonderful mineral note shines through the whole experience. Layered, complex, and lingering, a true wine drinking experience. Wonderful now, this wine will however benefit from further bottle aging reaching its peak in 4 to 6 years but drinkable for 10 years.

2018 Burly Chardonnay, Napa Valley - The 2018 Burly Chardonnay is sourced from the Razi vineyard and produces an intense wine with aromas of pineapple and oak.  At first swirl, complex oak, vanilla and butter leap from the glass. The palate has rich flavors of lemon and pear which are supported by elegant minerality and lively acidity.  The sur lie aging rounds out this wine, creating a broad mid palate and a smooth lingering finish of oak and citrus.  A repeat favorite for Chardonnay lovers.
