2018 Realm "Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1537535 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A wine that was previous released under the Kata label, the 2018 Beckstoffer Bourn is a gorgeous 2018 that does everything right, offering a vivid purple color, incredible notes of blue fruits, cassis, violets, chocolate, and graphite, full-bodied richness, a sexy, opulent texture, and sweet tannins.

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lovely, perfumed aromas of blackcurrants, dried blueberries, lavender and licorice. Chocolate orange and praline, too. It’s full-bodied, yet fresh and refined. Firm, sleek tannins frame the ripe-fruit flavors. Balanced and relatively restrained. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose of the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Bourn leaps from the glass with a stunning perfume of violets, dark chocolate, clove oil, star anise and incense over a lifted core of crème de cassis, blueberry pie and stewed black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has great tension and energy, featuring tightly wound black fruit and spicy layers plus a firm backbone of nice, ripe tannins, finishing long and fragrant. This is a very exciting new vineyard expression from Realm! (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard is the new incarnation of Kata, which Realm added to their range a few years ago. Inky, rich and expressive, the 2018 captures all of the natural intensity of this St. Helena site. Blackberry jam, rose petal, spice, licorice and menthol build into the deeply, resonant finish. The Petite Sirah is down to about 10%, which is not surprising, as Kata was always a pretty eccentric wine by present-day Napa Valley standards. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2021)
