Realm Cellars 2015 the Bard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Blended of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 The Bard offers up a very deep garnet-purple color and highly perfumed scents of violets, dried Provence herbs, lavender and tapenade over a core of cassis and blackberry preserves. Full-bodied and loaded with perfumed black fruit layers, it has a solid frame of rounded, plush-textured tannins and a provocatively earthy finish.

The Story

The Name: The Bard is our Cabernet Sauvignon-blend. As Sir William Shakespeare, aka The Bard, is the “king” of English literature, we thought it appropriate to name this wine, dominated as it is by the “king” of Napa Valley grape varieties – The Bard.

The Label: The label art is taken from a pocketsize edition of Shakespeare’s “King Richard II.” The edition is the “The Chiswick Shakespeare,” a text that first appeared in 1901. The label zeroes in on the opening of Act II, Scene I, on the page that contains the quote …”This blessed plot, this earth, this realm…” That was the quote that inspired us to look to Shakespeare for our proprietary blend names; it appeared on all of Realm’s original labels.
