- 2013 Realm Cellars The Bard - USA, California, Napa Valley (9/8/2020)
Wine is very dark with a huge nose of black fruit, dark chocolate and cassis. It is deeply layered with similar notes with a refined silky mouthfeel. This is pure Napa in style but retains energy,freshness and balance. Fantastic on it's own and even better matched with a bone in rib eye. I don't drink wines like this as much as I used to but glad to have a few more. This is in a sweet spot now and would not hesitate to open. Decant or filter for sediment. (97 pts.)

I stopped buying in 14 but wish listed some Bard 18's in the current release. If you have the 13 consider yourself lucky and find a reason to open a bottle.
