Tasting Notes:

The 2014 The Bard is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot. This is their largest cuvée of 2,000 cases. The wine shows exciting elegance, purity, a dense purple color, sweet black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice and charcoal. It is full-bodied, showing nice loamy forest floor notes. It also possesses a layered mouthfeel and terrific purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 20+ years.

Tasting Notes:

The aromas of oysters and peaches combine beautifully with the blackberry and blackcurrant character. Black olives, too. Full-bodied, layered and very intense with chocolate, black fruit and an intense, savory finish. Best Bard ever. Try in 2020, but already so pretty.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Making wine at the very highest level has always been at the foundation of Realm. Through “these blessed plots” – vineyard sites that we carefully curate and care for – our aim is nothing less than to illuminate and reflect the pinnacle of Napa Valley winemaking. But there’s something more that makes us tick, that makes us come to work each day with unflagging energy and commitment.Juan Mercado laid the groundwork for Realm. He had the dream, and he risked everything to achieve it. But today a new Realm beckons. A Realm that combines the characteristics of a great start-up – the restless enthusiasm and life-affirming passion that have defined us from the beginning – with the polish, professionalism and attention to detail of a more seasoned, focused enterprise.Ten, twenty, thirty years from now, the people at Realm may very well be different. But our vision, our quest, is that Realm stand for something beyond a bottle of great wine, beyond an individual person. Realm stands for following dreams and taking risks, establishing community and sharing good fortune. If we delight people with our wines, we will have done our job. But if we inspire them with our story – to pursue their own paths, realize their own dreams, we will have truly succeeded.
