Bure Family 2012 Thirteen Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2012 Thirteen offers a nose of cassis, cranberry, camphor, lilac sachet, and graphite. The palate entry is supremely rich with breathtaking concentration, velvet-like florals, and a mineral-driven core. The mid palate is exceptionally well balanced with seamless fruit and acidity. Nobly structured with great balance and richness, this immense wine offers an astonishingly long and luxurious finish. Drink 2016 – 2030.

Bure Family Winery
The remarkable Buré Family Cabernet blend is sourced from the vineyard adjacent to Dominus (99 points Robert Parker) and the original Opus One vineyard, called Beckstoffer To-Kalon in the heart of Napa. Bure is "Cult" winemaker Luc Morlet. Until recently, Morlet was most renowned for his work at Cult winery Peter Michael, developing their "Les Pavots" Cabernet , plus highly rated Chardonnay, Cabernet, and Sauvignon Blanc blends. Winning our vote for the most promising up-and-coming French winemaker in Napa today, Luc Morlet remains executive wine director at Peter Michael but recently launched his own wines sourced from the most prestigious vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma. Luc has already received lofty praise and "96 – 100" ratings from Robert Parker who proclaimed the 2009 Morlet Coup de Couer "one of the all-time great Chardonnays ever made in California" and recently dubbed Morlet "one of the most talented Frenchman crafting wines in California."

Bure Family wine is owned by Val Bure and his wife, actress Candace Cameron. After more than a decade playing professional hockey, Val has already shown great prowess pursuing this promising new wine venture, what he describes as "my life's next great passion." According to Val, "who needs anything more when you have faith, family, friends, food and great wine!?!" The label on Bure wines is an homage to Val's Russian heritage and great grandfather who was a master watch craftsman for the Russian Royal family.
