2013 Realm "The Tempest" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1250636 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Tempest is Realm's homage to Right Bank Bordeaux, as it is a blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. Like Shakespeare's famous play, this is meant to be an in-your-face, boisterous, expressive and flamboyant wine. Most of the grapes tend to come from great vineyards such as Dr. Crane and others. The wine is lush and ripe, with a stunning nose of coffee beans, chocolate, black cherries, and blackberries. It is deep, heady, and enormously appealing in its opulence and sexiness. Drink through 2025. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Realm's Merlot-based 2013 The Tempest is deep, powerful and intense. Ripe and opulent to the core, the 2013 hits the palate with serious richness and overall intensity. The flavors are bold and racy throughout, with plenty of blueberry jam and cherry liqueur nuances. Spice, mocha leather and tobacco meld into the open-knit, sweet finish. There is plenty of near and medium-term appeal here. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Combines richness with a core of structure, offering aromas of red currant and tomato leaf and layered flavors of cherry, black olive and spice. (TF) Inner quote mark (11/2016)
