2015 Realm "The Tempest" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1330397 99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark With the highest percentage of Merlot (95% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon), the 2015 The Tempest is made with immediate appeal in mind. And it delivers. This knockout Merlot gives up a huge nose of blueberries, currants, licorice, Asian spices and chocolate. This flows to a full-bodied, gorgeously layered 2015 that has the massive, succulent fruit profile of the vintage, yet stays, pure, elegant and seamless, with building tannin. I don’t see any need to hold off, but it will keep for 15-20+ years, easily. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blueberry, blackberry, and licorice aromas follow through to a full body. Tight and juicy and fruity. Fantastic depth and intensity. Extremely long and vivid. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 The Tempest displays a deep garnet-purple color and wonderfully plummy nose, backed up by notions of blueberry compote, baker’s chocolate, black soil, sandalwood and Chinese five spice. Rich, curvaceous, full-bodied and velvety, it fills the palate with exotic spices, lifted by a lively acid line and finishing on a lingering menthol note. (LPB) 95+ Inner quote mark (10/2017)
