Realm Cellars 2018 Farella Red Napa Valley

The core of Realm’s Farella Cabernet comes from a high point in the vineyard, a block referred to as “rockpile” because of the preponderance of stone and gravel in the soil. This block is bathed in afternoon sunlight during the growing season and the wine - concentrated and beautifully-structured - consistently shows a mix of red and black fruits with spice and mineral overtones. Farella has been historically 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, comprising Clones 4 and 8, but we began working with Merlot in the 2019 vintage.

The combination of fruit and earth result in savory notes, good acid structure, and firmer tannins that flirt with minerality.

James Suckling - 98 Points: "An intense nose of ripe blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, clove and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied and so juicy with a wealth of ripe black fruit and layers of sweet spices. Ripe, velvety tannins and a long finish. Already impressive, but deserves a few years to develop."
