Realm the Tempest Napa Valley 2004
91 points Robert Parker: The impressive 2004 The Tempest, a 524-case blend of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot, exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a big, rich nose of melted licorice, white chocolate, espresso, blackberries, and cherries. Super-pure, intense, and silky-textured, this stunning wine will drink beautifully for 8-12 years. (Dec 2006)
Realm Cellars produced five wines from the 2006 vintage – two blends (The Bard, The Tempest) and three single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon wines (Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Farella, Beckstoffer To Kalon). All of these wines were bottled unfined and unfiltered in June 2008. We will be pouring all of these wines, along with some older vintages, at our release parties in SF, NYC, LA and Houston.
