Realm's 2011 The Tempest is gorgeous. Bright red fruit, sweet spices, wild flowers and mint are all very much alive in this pointed, articulate Merlot-based red. This is one of the more feminine, gracious wines in the range. Raspberries, rose petals and cinnamon linger on a finish underpinned with bright, saline nuances. In 2011, Tempest is pure class. What a gorgeous, delicious wine this is. The Realm shows just how favored Merlot was in 2011. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cabernet Franc
Rated 93 Points Vinous
