Napa Wines for Celebrating Thanksgiving
Ric Forman founded Forman Vineyard in 1983 to fulfill a dream of producing, as a sole proprietor, small quantities of classically made Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. With a remarkable site, it has produced some unusually elegant wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, and his non-malolactic Chardonnay has become part of the lexicon of wine styles and is known as the “Forman style.”

Founded in less than two decades, Realm Cellars has already established as one of the most sought after estates in the world. Producing wines of excellent quality in small amounts, The young winery has quickly become a phenomenon in Napa Valley with several 100-point ratings. Robert Parker called Realm wines “outrageously delicious” and Antonio Galloni said “this is a gorgeous set of wines that deserve considerable attention”.

Both Forman  and Realm Cellars are extraordinary vineyards producing fantastic wines, celebrating This Thanksgiving Festival by choosing some of their wines!
2012 Forman Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon
HKD $700.00
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across like a textbook Bordeaux, specifically a Graves. Elegant blueberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with charcoal and camphor are followed by a wine with a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and a long, luscious, expansive mid-palate and finish. It will be even better in 2-5 years, and will last for two decades." - Robert Parker

2013 Forman Vineyard, Chardonnay Star Vineyard
HKD $380.00
"The Forman Chardonnay is 100% barrel-fermented, sees 10% new oak, but is never put through malolactic. The superb 2013 Chardonnay offers lots of minerality along with notions of white peaches, spring flowers, orange blossoms and poached pears. With loads of fruit, great acid and finesse, and only a hint of oak in the flavor profile, this medium to full-bodied, gorgeous Chardonnay can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years." - Robert Parker

2014 Realm Cellars, The Bard Proprietary Blend
HKD $1,425.00
"The 2014 The Bard is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot. This is their largest cuvée of 2,000 cases. The wine shows exciting elegance, purity, a dense purple color, sweet black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice and charcoal. It is full-bodied, showing nice loamy forest floor notes. It also possesses a layered mouthfeel and terrific purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 20+ years." - Robert Parker

2013 Realm Cellars, The Tempest Proprietary Blend
HKD $1,235.00
"The 2013 Tempest is Realm´s homage to Right Bank Bordeaux, as it is a blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. Like Shakespeare´s famous play, this is meant to be an in-your-face, boisterous, expressive and flamboyant wine. Most of the grapes tend to come from great vineyards such as Dr. Crane and others. The wine is lush and ripe, with a stunning nose of coffee beans, chocolate, black cherries, and blackberries. It is deep, heady, and enormously appealing in its opulence and sexiness. Drink it over the next 7-10 years." - Robert Parker

2012 Realm Cellars, Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard
HKD $2,850.00
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon emerges from another first-growth vineyard that was acquired by Andy Beckstoffer in 1993, and planted with multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. The original vineyard was planted in 1868, but the present one consists of nearly 90 acres. The 2012 reveals incredible complexity and density with notes of Christmas fruitcake, baking spices, licorice, crème de cassis and forest floor. Full-bodied with the vintage’s opulence and drama, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was fashioned from Clones 4 and 337. It should age effortlessly for 25-30 years."

2012 Realm Cellars, Farella Vineyard
HKD $1,900.00
"The single-vineyard 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Farella Vineyard comes from a hillside, cool-climate site in the Coombsville AVA in the eastern Vaca Mountains. In the past, much of this fruit went into early vintages of Opus One. This is a tannic, opulent, backward, primary effort displaying an inky/purple color along with notes of incense, camphor, toast and abundant black fruits. Full-bodied, dramatic, slightly tannic and structured, this masculine-styled 2012 will benefit from several years in the cellar, and should drink well for two decades..." - Robert Parker
