Realm Moonracer 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
Lastly, the 2017 Moonracer comes from the estate in Stags Leap and includes small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. With a terrific sense of minerality as well as chocolaty dark fruits, tobacco, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, outstanding balance, ultra-fine tannins, and a dense, concentrated, ageworthy vibe. Give bottles a solid 4-5 years of bottle age and it's going to drink brilliantly for 20 years or more.
The Cabernet Sauvignon Moonracer Realm Estate is another impressive 2017 from Realm. Inky red cherry, plum jam, wild flowers, spice, new oak and tobacco all race out of the glass, with sweet floral notes that add lift and energy with time in the glass.
