This was my first time having a wine from Relic. A fun blend lighter and brighter then I thought it would be. Not sure who brought it but THANKS

Fantastic nose. Strawberries, licorice and other assorted dark fruit. Oak is well integrated and the mouth feel is spectacular. These guys nailed this blend again!

Served from Coravin. I can see why the average CT for these wines hovers around a 91. This wine seems to drink in 'reverse.' Has a powerful purple and black fruit opening, but then really thins out quite a bit to a sweeter purple fruit and fig-rich finish. Definitely not a bad wine. Almost wondering if I didn't open this one too early, but not so sure as this one sort of has somewhat of a tart fruit finish. Not that it wasn't an enjoyable tart finish, but not what I was expecting. Just seemed to be all over the place. Would I kick this one out of bed for eating crackers? Naa....I'd probably eat a few myself. I think this wine showed better at the winery. If you have these, I really can't tell you whether or not I'd drink or hold....a little confused by this one! Might be worth popping the cork on the remaining half of the bottle, re-corking in an hour and coming back to the remainder tomorrow!

An interesting Napa Rhone blend. Mouvedre 42%, Grenache Syrah and Carignane 19%, and 2%Petite Syrah. Aromas of dark fruit, peppercorns. Good weight, long finish.
