2016 Realm Cellars Moonracer Estate Cabernet Sauvignon | Wappo Hill, Stags Leap District Napa Valley California 750ml


The Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine is composed of the finest lots from the vineyard. Winemaker Benoit Touquette has a lot to choose from, as the site, with its multiple blocks, elevations, facings and diverse soils, has character in spades. Moonracer bears the unmistakable mark of this stimulating vineyard, as well as the Stags Leap District. Strong, powerful, yet elegant, with refined tannins and plenty of depth...It walks the line, combining characteristics typical of northern and southern Napa Valley. It's got plenty of fruit but also layered flavors, depth and complexity. |Realm Cellars

The third vintage from this estate vineyard in Stag's Leap, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Moonracer is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot (which is close to the breakdown of the vineyard). It offers a beautiful bouquet of creme de cassis, spring flowers, graphite, and crushed rocks. While it doesn't have the density to the To Kalon and Dr. Crane releases, it is seamless, full-bodied, incredibly complex, and multi-dimensional. Already impossible to resist, drink this pure, elegant beauty any time over the coming 20-25 years. | 96 points, Jeb Dunnuck for
