2014 Realm "The Bard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1290054 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Bard is one of Realm’s 'proprietary blends', paying tribute to both the Left Bank of Bordeaux and the Napa Valley. Comprised of 30-40 separate parcels stretching from Coombsville to Calistoga, it's always Cabernet Sauvignon-driven and around 2,500 cases are produced. The nose is equal parts powerful and floral, with notes of lavender and oiled leather. Ripe blackberries coat the palate and give way to lifted red fruit notes. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
