Bure 'Majesty Blend' Cabernet - Napa 2006

Posted by Picasa
Bure ‘Majesty Blend’ Cabernet - Napa 2006

Bure Family wine is owned by former pro hockey star Val Bure and his wife, actress Candace Cameron from Full House. He has a passion for wine and wanted to produce small lots of handcrafted wines. The name is pays tribute to his great grandfather who was a master watch craftsman for the Russian Royal Family.

The premier offering of Cabernet Sauvignon from Bure Family is a combination of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Merlot to create a wine that is dense and rich with a strong backdrop of black currant and licorice. This wine delivers a great balance of blueberry, tobacco, cigar and youthful tannins that reveal the wine’s power with mouth coating flavors of various black fruits and vanilla.

This is a rare opportunity to taste a Napa Cabernet under $100 with serious “cult” wine connections. The grapes are sourced from the same “Meteor” vineyard in Napa that Screaming Eagle winemakers use for their own private Cabernet. The winemaker Luc Morlet is most famous for crafting Peter Michael “Les Pavots” Cabernet ($249 per bottle and 97 points in wine spectator). Only 185 cases of this inaugural vintage boutique cabernet were produced.
