Realm "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (4.4/5)
Notes: Deep ruby purple with very good legs. On the nose it's clean offering intense notes black fruits (currants and brambles), hints of cocoa and mocha and cedar, loamy soil, lead pencil and developing leather tobacco. On the palate is dry, medium acidity, med+ tannins, high alcohol, full body with very good flavour intensity, serious tannic structure and fruit purity (with Beckstoffer's grapes it's hard to get it wrong!). Unfortunately the wine is a bit on the hot side. Med+ finish. Big and Bold will not disappoint the Oakville Cabs aficionados.
