2012 Realm Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard Cabernet - 100 pts!
Realm Cellars is a journey.  Just eight years ago, the winery was nearly bankrupt when owner Scott Becker and winemaker Benoit Touquette teamed up to revive it.  Fueled by a clear vision, an entrepreneurial spirit and relentless determination, they transformed Realm into one of the most electrifying domaines in Napa Valley today.  Now with its own hillside Estate in the Stags Leap District, 50 acres of vines and access to a number of the finest vineyards in the appellation, Realm makes some of the most sought-after wines in Napa Valley.  
Making wine at the very highest level is at the core of Realm Cellars.  Since 2012, the wines have been awarded more 100-point scores from internationally recognized wine critics than any other producer in Napa Valley.  The Realm portfolio includes both Single Vineyard wines and Proprietary Blends – collectively, the wines are equal parts an expression of the land and an articulation of the winemaking craft.  The house style of Realm can best be described as a creative tension between richness and precision, density and finesse, purity of fruit and nuance.   
The next chapter of Realm Cellars promises to be just as bold.  The vision for what Realm can be encompasses more than creating fine wines.  This passionate team is ready to push ahead in its relentless quest to secure an enduring place among the icons of the wine world.  The best is yet to come.

Robert Parker

Robert Parker 100 RP -  A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, Realm's perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard exhibits a La Mission Haut-Brion-like bouquet of blueberries, scorched earth, burning embers and spring flowers, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a staggeringly long, multidimensional, 60-second finish. It can be drunk with enormous pleasure now, but promises to evolve for at least a quarter of a century. For historical buffs, the Dr. Crane Vineyard is named after a real doctor, who first planted the vineyard in 1858. In the 1920s, this small area was once considered the home of migrant Chinese workers.
