Over the past decade, owner Scott Becker and winemaker Benoit Touquette have made Realm Cellars one of the hottest brands in the Napa Valley. Earning scores comparable to the true cult wines of the valley (Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Scarecrow, etc.), the duo focuses on the best vineyards Napa has to offer. Production remains small, and when you factor in their retail prices vis-a-vis the scores they receive, you can see why collectors snatch up these wines then they appear on retail shelves!

The Bard is Realm's flagship wine; a blend built around Cabernet Sauvignon, this bottling is comprised of fruit from Beckstoffer To Kalon in Oakville, Houyi on Pritchard Hill, Farella in Coombsville, and other stellar properties. This wine punches above its weight class, and is guaranteed to sell out!

JEB DUNNUCK 99 POINTS - "The 2019 The Bard checks in as 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, and it's another dense, rich, powerful wine from this team that readers are going to absolutely love. Coming from throughout the valley (it's always a great representation of the vintage), it offers up a brilliant nose of creme de cassis, ripe plums, graphite, scorched earth, and chocolate. About as seamless as they come on the palate, it's full-bodied and has a thrilling texture, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's one of those wines where I feel like I'm overusing adjectives, but it's warranted."
