Birthday treat in magnum. Had a Realm tasting in our home a few years ago and this was a leftover bottle. Should’ve saved more!

Dark ruby red with some purplish hue. Crazy good nose with cinnamon, dark currants, cocoa and vanilla. Full bodied and heavy tannins (7/10). Rich with tons of more potential with some time. Dark berries, spices and some rich gravel. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2038.

All I can say is....’Wow!’ All of us were taken back by the nose, the strength and the depth of this wine. About two hours in the decanter to insure it was primed was certainly worth the effort. Lush on the tongue, nice lengthy finish and beautifully balanced. WOTN.

The wine that sold me on Realm. If Benoit and the team can do this in 2011, imagine the future possibilities. Multiple amazing wines since.

Not a lot needs to be said...well built wine. Pairs well with Dave Brubeck on vinyl.
