    Realm Cellars Red 2005
    The Absurd
    3 in owc, 2-The Birdwatcher, 1-The Gardener, 2-The Magician
    Bottle (5)
    "The 2005 The Absurd (41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Petit Verdot, and 24% Merlot) is the most intense, extracted wine of the group. However, it needs time in the bottle, no doubt because of the elevated percentage of Petit Verdot. An inky/purple color is followed by incense, camphor, melted licorice, smoke, and blueberry as well as blackberry fruit characteristics. Dense, full-bodied, powerful, and long, this wine appears set for an enjoyable, long life." (93pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #180, Dec 2008)
