The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Farella Vineyard is stellar. Rich, aromatic and wonderfully expressive, the 2018 Farella captures a striking balance of Realm richness and the cool, savory notes that make Farella such a compelling site. Rose petal, mint, spice, licorice and blood orange give the 2018 striking aromatic nuance and complexity. This is a gorgeous Coombsville Cabernet. [Antonio Galloni, 09/02/2021]
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2038

Realm took over the management of the Farella vineyard from 2018 with a view to eventually assume possession of the property. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Farella Vineyard is their first “Estate” wine from the vineyard. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes bounding out of the glass with youthful notes of fresh black plums, Morello cherries, ripe blackcurrants and Black Forest cake plus hints of cumin seed, damp earth and spice box with subtle hints of tobacco and new leather. Medium to full-bodied, it has a solid foundation of fir, grainy tannins and lovely freshness supporting the bright, crunchy fruit, finishing long with a provocative, lifted perfume. [08/10/2020]

An intense nose of ripe blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, clove and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied and so juicy with a wealth of ripe black fruit and layers of sweet spices. Ripe, velvety tannins and a long finish. Already impressive, but deserves a few years to develop. Drink from 2022. [07/12/2020]
Jeb Dunnuck 97
Also all Cabernet Sauvignon, and the first vintage where this team has also done the farming, the 2018 Farella Estate spent 16 months in 75% new French oak. More vibrant red and blue fruits, graphite, flowers, and spice notes define this beauty, which is full-bodied and has an elegant, seamless texture, great tannins, and a beautiful, classy style.
