The Bard’s name is a nod to Shakespeare, from whom Realm takes its own moniker. The wine is a Cabernet-dominant red whose label simply says Napa Valley—but take a look at these these sources: Blair, Houyi, Beckstoffer To Kalon, Beckstoffer Bourn, Larkmead, Realm SLD Estate, Farella, Orchard, and Bettinelli Upper Range all go into this wine. That’s an all-star list of Napa Valley sites, which is why this bottle belongs in the top tier. It earned a big-time score of 97 points from The Wine Independent, the publication of former Wine Advocate editor-in-chief Lisa Perrotti-Brown.
