Realm Cellars sits at the apex of Napa's great Cabernet Sauvignon producers, crafting wines of the very highest order from the legendary Beckstoffer To Kalon and Dr. Crane Vineyards, and thriving with their growing and enviable portfolio of Estate Vineyard. They are as sought-after and collectible as it gets, yet their two rarest productions showcase an entirely new side of the Valley and are gaining the same 'cult' following as their famed reds.

The Fidelio Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is a pure varietal from Realm's Farella Estate Vineyard is the southerly, cool-climate Coombsville AVA. Riveting in its youth, Fidelio has all the hallmarks of an age-worthy Sauvignon Blanc. Ageing in a unique combination of neutral French oak, concrete eggs, and terracotta amphoras, bring incredible depth and complexity.

The extraordinary Precious Twin Rosé 2023 is an elegant blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Charbono - a varietal you'll be seeing more and more as it thrives in the northern reaches of Calistoga. With much of the Merlot coming from the Farella Estate Vineyard, there's a noticeable vibrancy and concentration. Coming in at just 12.9% alcohol, it's a whole new expression of Napa that everyone should experience.

We need to talk about the 2023 vintage, too: this mild, extremely long and dry growing season bears similarity to the great vintages of the late-1970s and early-1980s. The buzz throughout Napa during our trip last September was incredible, with the harvest starting mid-October. This extra time on the vines develops huge levels of complexity and vineyard expression, and most winemakers are already considering it the vintage of a lifetime!

While we won't see the reds for a few years, the Fidelio and Precious Twin offer a first taste of a truly special year for Napa. Both wines will arrive in the Spring in time for some (hopefully!) warmer weather and a return to al fresco dining, so make sure you're prepared with a case or two of each!
