Relic Ritual Red Wine Napa Valley 2015
The 9th vintage of our Napa pre-prohibition blend has come together beautifully. What is so remarkable about 2015 is the opulence and richness of the vintage without any roasted characteristics. We credit this to the vintage's consistent heat that never reached extremely high temperatures. Fragrant notes of strawberry coulis, ripe lingonberry tart, cardamom and warm, sandy minerality explode from the glass. The palate is full-bodied with richness to spare, and an incredible sense of layered depth. tannin's, as usual for this blend, provide a supporting role but does not dominate, allowing the powerful finish to linger.

A blend of 30% Grenache, 28% Mourvèdre, 18% Carignan,15% Syrah, and 9% Petite, the 2015 Ritual Heritage Blend comes from some seriously old vines and spent 20 months mostly in neutral oak. It’s an awesome Rhône blend from California that gives up loads of darker berry fruits, ground pepper, lavender, incense and hints of cured meats. Deep, medium to full-bodied, elegant, and seamless, with grained tannin, it’s a beauty that Rhône lovers shouldn’t miss. It has enough tannin to keep for 10-15 years.

A Rhone varietal blend, the 2015 Ritual features a medium garnet-purple color and spicy, baked berry and kirsch-laced nose with hints of black pepper and fragrant earth. Full-bodied and packed with earthy/mineral-inspired characters in the mouth, ripe, rounded tannins and a lively backbone, "finishing on a peppery note.
