This sketch is of what the reconstructed Realm winery will look like after it's completed. The 2018 vintage marks the debut release of Realm’s Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard Cabernet but winemaker Benoit Touquette knows the vineyard well as he used to produce Kata, which came from Bourn beginning in 2011 but is no longer made under the Kata label. This single vineyard from Beckstoffer comes from the west side of St. Helena and is “deep garnet-purple in color and 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!” -Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. 3 bottles are available.
