2018 The Bard Proprietary Blend, Realm Cellars, Napa
85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah. The 2018 Bard is a showcase of the best Cabernet the Valley had to offer in this widely celebrated vintage. It's got a fantastic balance of intensity and power, with dense cassis and black plum with rich chocolately texture, and fresh, vibrant floral notes of violet and lavender, along with woody herbs. Incredible mouth-coating texture and richness, this also shows enough grip to age gracefully for years to come. A seriously exciting Napa wine.
