Supple and generous, the 2016 Schug Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley is a solidly built Cabernet blended in the classic Bordeaux style that Walter Schug pioneered in California while winemaster of Joseph Phelps Vineyards. A ripe mouthful of currant and cherry flavors is framed by fine tannins and a touch of spicy oak. It has a classic bouquet bursting with berries, cassis and spice. A generous portion of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec are blended in to add charm and grace, further enhancing the bright berry flavors and lively acidity. Try this wine with hearty stews, wild mushrooms and grilled meats. Though ready to enjoy now, this wine will develop gracefully with 5 to 7 years of additional cellaring.

Benoit is the mastermind winemaker who has been awarded eight 100-point scores from Robert Parker for the wines he has produced for Realm, in addition to others we cherish and champion with pride: Jack Quinn, Kata and Fait-Main.

This beauty boasts a saturated purple color as well as a classic bouquet of creme de cassis, licorice, toasted spices, and tobacco. Deep, full-bodied, and powerful, it still has the class and purity of the 2019 vintage front and center.” The 2019 vintage is powerful, well balanced and boasting with fresh aromatics. Pops of blackberry, raspberry and vanilla first grab your attention then invites you into a bouquet of thyme, French lavender and violets. The tannins are soft and smooth, providing an effortless finish. Simply delicious!
2018 Growers Guild (Sharecropper’s) Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley$22.00
During the economic recession of 2001, and Owen Roe’s first couple vintages as a winery, Washington growers were facing hardship in selling their fruit, come harvest time. At Owen Roe, they wanted to help their farming friends and prevent missing out on such well-tended, beautiful fruit. They were presented with the difficult and costly purchasing of grapes to process, cellar and bottle, waiting several months to recover the costs on the finished wine. To overcome this obstacle, they decided to bring back the historical business practice of sharecropping, resulting in the aptly named wine, “Sharecropper’s.” Now called Growers Guild, this partnership meant that Owen Roe would take the fruit, make the wine and once it was sold, share the profits with the growers. This remains an important part of their history and due to the success of this wine; they are now able to pay the growers upfront. Everyone’s favorite go-to weeknight Cab does not disappoint in the Growers Guild Cabernet Sauvignon 2018. Sweet aromas of blackberry, candied fruit, vanilla and brown sugar leads to a more savory palate of pomegranate, green pepper and oil cured olives. This Cabernet finishes with bright acidity and lingering tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.
