Lot #1010. Realm Cellars Proprietary Red Falstaff 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92+ AG.
"The 2009 Falstaff is 55% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Dark fruit, mocha, licorice, scorched earth and new leather are some of the notes that flow from this deep, muscular wine. This is naturally quite a bit bigger than the Tempest, and every bit as beautiful . . . . Realm is one of the most exciting young wineries in Napa Valley. Wendell Laidley and Juan Mercado founded Realm in 2002. Since then, they have put together an impressive collection of vineyard sources. Benoit Touquette, a protege of Michel Rolland, is now the winemaker. Rolland collaborated on the blends beginning in 2009. This is a gorgeous set of wines that deserves considerable attention." Wine Advocate #198, Dec 2011
