($95; includes 9% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines red and dark berries, flowers and licorice. Crunchy dark berry flavors are nicely framed by sound acidity and lifted by a floral element, with a subtle minerality running through the wine. From vines in their 6th leaf; winemaker Hirby makes this blend for early appeal, and today the wine's baby fat indeed buffers its tannins nicely.

The brilliant 2007 The Bard Proprietary Red (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) is the most flamboyant of these wines. One could also say it is the sexiest. Gorgeously exuberant and filled with personality, this dense purple-colored 2007 offers up notes of melted chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, cedar, and underbrush. This ostentatious, incredibly pure, deep, fleshy, full-bodied sex pot of a wine can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more.

Wine Spectator | 93

Tightly wound, firm, dense, chewy and tannic, this is a full-blown red offering extracted mineral, currant, herb and fresh earth flavors, with touches of sage and underbrush. A muscular style that firms up on the finish, where the tannins flex their muscle. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

Big cab blend from my Realm friends. Give it 20 mins to let the Petite Verdot be a little more "petite". Solid effort from a great year.
