2013 Relic Wines Ritual

Estate: Relic Wines

Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America

Tasting Note:July 20, 2016

Deep and dark purplish ruby red. Attack of black cherries and raspberries on the nose with some iron carrying on throughout. Nose finishes off with some smokey undertones and a little meaty too. Very savory characteristics on the palate with a strong backbone and structure. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Dry and long mineral fulled finish. Needs a bit of time to fully develop.

Red Rhone blend made up of 41% Mourvedre, 19% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 19% Carignane, and 2% Petite Sirah.
