"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard is the new incarnation of Kata, which Realm added to their range a few years ago. Inky, rich and expressive, the 2018 captures all of the natural intensity of this St. Helena site. Blackberry jam, rose petal, spice, licorice and menthol build into the deeply, resonant finish. The Petite Sirah is down to about 10%, which is not surprising, as Kata was always a pretty eccentric wine by present-day Napa Valley standards." - Antonio Galloni
