2005 Realm "The Bard" Napa Valley Red Blend

SKU #1080099 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2005 The Bard exhibits chocolate espresso, mocha, black currants, lavender, and cedar characteristics, along with terrific stuffing and a layered mouthfeel. While it is not as complex as the previous two efforts, I may have caught it at a slightly more subdued stage as it is just as concentrated as those cuvees. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated, deep red. Fruit-driven aromas of raspberry and cherry. A creamy-sweet fruit bomb sexed up by all new oak and a high percentage of Taransaud and Darnajou barrels. Finishes with serious but ripe tannins and a note of medicinal cherry. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)
