TN: 2008 Realm Cellars Falstaff Vineyard (USA, California, Napa Valley)

2008 Realm Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Falstaff - USA, California, Napa Valley (1/30/2011)[/i]
I had a great opportunity to drink this wine at Por Fin with Juan Mercado, one of the partners at Realm. They are onto something special with this wine. It is 85% Cab Franc and it is built like champ. Huge black fruiits and black cherry oozed into your mouth and down your gullot. There is an enomorous mouthfeel to this beauty without overpowering your taste buds. It had a sense of elegance and thrust at the same time. Nice minty notes add to blueberries and cherries on the bouquet. A bit of dusty earth finds its way at the mid palate. All in all, just delicious. (94 pts.)[/list]

The Farella is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon - did you drink “The Falstaff” instead which is 77% Cab Franc?

Thanks for the correction, I deleted and re-posted in CT.

I get those all mixed up too when I get my bottles delivered and I’m doing inventory. I don’t know why they are so confusing to me other than the two F’s - Farella, Falstaff, Bard, Tempest…
