96pointsRealm Cellars 2016 The Tempest Red (Napa Valley)

This is the producer's Merlot-based blend, sourced from Calistoga, Oak Knoll and Stags Leap District. The minority is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon from a stellar source in Oakville. It buzzes in soft layers of creamy texture and beautiful red fruit—a mix of plum, apple skin, maple and exotic Asian spice. The tannins are expansive yet tamed, easily enjoyed in the moment or over time. Virginie Boone
