09' Bure Family Thirteen. We decanted it for 90 minutes. Very dark red in color. It looks brand-new. Palate is a monster even after a two hour decanting. Primarily all black fruits with a hint of blue fruits. RIPE- plum, chocolate, & tannins /acidity that are bold in this 100% Cab. 10'+ years in this bottle. Luc Morlet winemaker . I'm gonna wait another 18 months before we open another.

Big, but only 6 years old so I'd say that's expected. Some years are definitely left on this #cabernet. #napa #wine

Pop & Pour. Getting better as it matures in the bottle. Simply that much more accessible. Delicious!

09'Bure Thirteen. Again... I'm starting to think some of these 09's are coming around. Drink/ Hold.

Definitely need to decant for a few hours to bring out the true taste in this wine. Typical bold Napa cab 😋

2013 Thirteen Bure
Used aerator... didnt have time to decant and still had huge potential straight out of bottle. Looking forward to decanting and drinking or cellar for some years.

Smells subtle but tastes big. Very good.

A little immature -- I think it'll be HUGE in 2016. But still yummy!
