Composed of 88% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot, the 2015 The Falstaff gives a deep garnet-purple color and compelling nose of crushed wild blueberries and blackberries plus fragrant earth and Indian spices nuances, with coaxing, lovely garrigue, dried roses, cigar box and crushed rock nuances. The palate is soft and sleek, with an elegant, medium to full body and very fine-grained tannins supporting the intense blue and black fruit flavors, layering in spice box, earth and bay leaf notions on the long finish.
Realm Cellars was founded in 2002 by sourcing fruit from some of the most distinct vineyards in Napa Valley, including To Kalon, Dr. Crane and Farella. Realm purchased land in the Stags Leap District in 2015 and introduced its first Estate wine called Moonracer. The portfolio also consists of proprietary blends based on specific varietals -- The Tempest is a Merlot blend, Falstaff is a Cabernet Franc blend, and The Bard is the signature Cabernet Sauvignon blend from vineyards throughout Napa Valley. With several 100-point scores in recent years, Realm Cellars is quickly becoming a Napa Valley cult producer. Wines are stylistically plush with plenty of fruit, very approachable in their youth, and perfect for the cellars of aficionados.
