Given the news from Realm and Nine Suns, this seems appropriate for dinner tonight.

Well hello Delectable! It’s been awhile. Long uninteresting story about that. But I’m returning with some goodies. This 2015 was marvelous and it strikes me as ready to drink now, though Realm keeps surprising with longevity.

Dark purple and opaque. Big nose. Big wine. Notes of black fruit and blueberries, gravel stone, some graphite and tobacco leaf. Rich in the mouth but not overly so. Great structure and balance. Silky. Long lasting finish.

Less full on than 14. Polished. Redder profile. Nutmeg on finish. Vanilla.

Chocolatey full-bodied, stunning wine, very much in the Realm style, i should have waited 20 years before drinking...

Pop & Pour straight off the truck, thank you UPS!
Started with the Houyi since I had the 12 Nine Suns over the wknd,
Actually has more nose than the Nine Suns did, but both are great,
