Lot #582. Realm Cellars Proprietary Red Houyi Vineyard 2015

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 97 JD.
"From a site on Pritchard Hill farmed by David Abreu, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Houyi Vineyard is another big, opulent beauty that has terrific minerality (I wrote Graves-like in my notes) as well as loads of blackcurrant, smoked earth, graphite, and chocolate aromas and flavors. With a stacked mid-palate, sweet tannin, and an expansive, opulent personality, drink it anytime over the coming two decades. One of the most thrilling tastings I was able to do for this report, these incredible wines from Realm are made by the talented Frenchman, Benoit Touquette. These are true blockbuster, magical wines I wish every reader could taste." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Dec 2017
Provenance: The Alguacil Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
