From the winery; "Making wine at the very highest level has always been at the core of Realm Cellars. Through “these blessed plots” – vineyards that we own and sites that we carefully curate – our aim is nothing less than to illuminate and reflect the pinnacle of Napa Valley winegrowing. But our vision for what Realm can be encompasses more than creating fine wine. Securing an enduring place in the history of Napa Valley, that is also our aspiration.

Realm Cellars is a journey, built upon the dreams and ambitions of people willing to risk everything in the pursuit of beauty and quality. We have come a long way, but there is always so much further to go. Drawing on a shared ethos of entrepreneurship and relentless perfectionism, the Realm team will never be satisfied with the status quo. Every success - and every failure - is an opportunity to learn, adapt and evolve. With grit and determination, we strive to create a legacy greater than any one individual, one that will last for generations.

As we look to the future, we see only possibility. Our Estate in the Stags Leap District is our foundation, ensuring that Realm Cellars will be here for decades to come. There is much work ahead: a property to revitalize, vineyards to re-plant, a hospitality concept to be realized, and of course, wines to be made. As we map our course, our promise - to our customers, our growers, ourselves - is that Realm Cellars will never be static, never complacent. We will make our mark in the firm belief that the best is always yet to come."

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard displays an opaque purple-black color. It saunters confidently out of the glass with compelling notes of warm black plums, blackcurrant cordial, Morello cherries and black raspberries followed by an opulent perfume of exotic spices, dusty soil, rose oil and crushed rocks with a waft of sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, seductive and so, so spicy, the palate possesses a multitude of savory, earth and preserved fruit layers, framed by an achingly beautiful velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long, long, long—truly showing off its latent power. Like a gorgeous intellectual, this is a wine that will absolutely turn heads and create a stir.

The 2018 Beckstoffer Dr. Crane is gorgeous, offering classic 2018 purity in its blue fruits, cassis, chocolate, tobacco, cold fireplace, and loamy earth-like aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness and depth, it has flawless balance, lots of building tannins, and a powerful, backward style that's going to benefit from bottle age. It doesn’t have that “je ne sais quoi” quality of the 2015 yet shares similarities with the 2016 given its purity and structure. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 25+.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is a classic Realm wine. Rich, sumptuous and opulent to the core, the 2018 hits all the right notes. Inky dark red/purplish fruit, espresso, lavender and rose petal build in a racy, flamboyant wine loaded with character. The 2018 takes all the Crane signatures and amplifies them, including the tannins, which will need a few years to settle down. There is a to like here.

Lots of blackcurrant, blueberry, dark chocolate, burnt orange and licorice on the nose. Ink and tar, too. It’s full-bodied with rich, concentrated layers of fruit and spice and firm, smooth tannins
