2014 realm cellars, the bard, napa valley

Why We're Buying

The Bard is another tribute to Shakespeare and the classic wines of Bordeaux. This red blend pays homage to the Left Bank, with its density, weight, and unmistakable concentration. Realm Cellars uses five grapes from its Napa Valley vineyards, though cabernet sauvignon dominants the cuvée at 70%.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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. Drink it over the next 20+ years.
