Incredible wine for 2011. Are we sure they didn’t use 2012 grapes?!?!?!😀

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.

Everything you want in a Napa Cab - silky smooth, warmth of #baking spice, a symphony of chocolate and tobacco.

10' Realm Beckstoffer To-Kalon. Throwing a ton of sediment. This wine truly comes into shape after a nice decanting. Full-bodied. Nose is a little tight. The palate is full of blackberry, red licorice, spices, & earthiness to it. A good 30 second finish. When people try this wine in 3/5 years they'll be amazed. Thinking RP in the 10 year revisit NAPA issue will give this 95-97 points.
