This year’s blend, comprising 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Petite Sirah, showcases the winery’s innovative approach, incorporating fruit from various esteemed vineyards, including select estate sources.

    Exuding a deep garnet-purple hue, The Bard 2021 enchants the senses with a bouquet that unfurls vibrant layers of crushed black currants, red currant jelly, and succulent black raspberries, interwoven with delicate nuances of pencil shavings, lilacs, dark chocolate, and a hint of invigorating spearmint. On the palate, this full-bodied wine reveals a robust structure, characterized by ripe, fine-grained tannins and a dynamic backbone that elegantly frames the tightly coiled medley of red, black, and blue fruit flavors. The wine culminates with an enduring finish, exuding remarkable length and a vivacious energy that lingers on the palate. With an impressive 97 points from Wine Independent, Realm’s 2021 The Bard enthralls with its vibrant black fruit medley, velvety tannins, and enduring, lively finish.

    The Wine Independent
    A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Petite Sirah, the fruit for the 2021 The Bard comes from sites across the valley, including some estate fruit and some sourced fruit. Deep garnet-purple colored, it shoots from the glass with vibrant notions of crushed black currants, red currant jelly, black raspberries, and pencil shavings, giving way to notes of lilacs, dark chocolate, and a waft of spearmint. The full-bodied palate is firm with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone framing the tightly wound red, black, and blue fruit flavors, finishing with great length and a real skip in its step.
