Realm Cellars The Absurd Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

$619

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, is the 2014 The Absurd, basically a choice of their finest barrels, or as winemaker and owner Benoit Touquette says, “The creme de la creme.” This is another perfect wine equaling their incredible 2013. Yet the 2014 is slightly more forward and showy... There are 250 cases of this majestic wine that has an opaque purple color, extraordinary nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry, creosote, charcoal, toast and spice. The wine has unbelievable fruit on the attack, midpalate and finish, compelling purity, texture and a finish of close to a full minute... Drink now - 2035. Robert Parker
