Cal­i­for­nia’s Napa Val­ley seems to be mov­ing from the Bordeaux model to Bur­gundy’s, with more and more wine pro­duc­ers mak­ing sin­gle-vine­yard wines, in par­tic­u­lar caber­net-based reds. A win­ery called Bond makes caber­nets from six dif­fer­ent vine­yards. A new star pro­ducer in the val­ley is Realm Cel­lars. It makes cabs each year from such fa­mous “crus” as Beck­stof­fer Dr Crane Vine­yard and Beck­stof­fer To Kalon Vine­yard. The for­mer in 2012 is a knock­out, show­ing amaz­ing black­berry, Asian mush­room and stone char­ac­ter, and silky, sexy tan­nins. 97 points
