    Description

    Realm Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
    Beckstoffer, Dr. Crane Vineyard
    2nl
    Bottle (6)


    "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.” (100 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #215, Oct. 2014)


    Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000.
