  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 100

    A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, Realm's perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard exhibits a La Mission Haut-Brion-like bouquet of blueberries, scorched earth, burning embers and spring flowers, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a staggeringly long, multidimensional, 60-second finish. It can be drunk with enormous pleasure now, but promises to evolve for at least a quarter of a century. For historical buffs, the Dr. Crane Vineyard is named after a real doctor, who first planted the vineyard in 1858. In the 1920s, this small area was once considered the home of migrant Chinese workers.

    Initially had some cherry notes, but was very closed. Three+ hours of air and it was a different wine. Softer entry and round mouthfeel but a firm structure behind it. The flavors became much more layered. A really nice wine.
