Relic Wine Cellars

The founding philosophy of Relic wines is and has always been to use the old methods to make the most authentic, complex and delicious wines possible. To do this successfully and to make world-class wines of every vintage, every detail needs to be prepared for, recognized when it occurs, celebrated and adapted to. There is no standard recipe, only the passion of the founders working in concert with nature, and to Mike and Schatzi, this is when true beauty occurs.

Relic is the story of Mike Hirby and Schatzi Throckmorton, who have more than two decades of wine making experience guiding their natural talents. Relic strives to make wines that represent a place and a time - with each growing season allowing for different expressions in balance with what nature offers. “ If there is a Relic style, we hope that it is one of balance, energy, complexity and harmony.”

Bold & Structured

This Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in 60% new French Oak. Displaying a deep ruby color with a splash of magenta and a black core, the wine jumps out of the glass with dark fruit compote, black fig, exotic spice notes, deep chocolate and bourbon vanilla tones. On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and rich, yet like all the Relic wines, it displays balance and freshness with red and black fruits in waves of dense flavor. The finish has the tannins to provide structure and ageability without ever getting in the way of the delicious fruit. 119 cases were produced from 5 barrels.

Complex & Acidic

The color is a light straw with flashes of green. Aromas of lemon, lime blossom, green papaya, Gravenstein apple and flinty minerality lead to a finesse-driven palate that is extremely silky. The palate features more exotic flavors of orange, lemon curd and the lightest vanilla with a hint of spice on the long, graceful finish, framed by mouth watering acidity. Aged for 11 months in 33% new French oak.

Bold & Complex

The rocky riverbed soils are composed of pure volcanics at the foot of Simmons Canyon and produce a wine of perfume, minerality and dense richness. The color is a garnet red with hints of magenta at the edge. Aromas of red and black fruits, damson plum, desert sage, dried rosemary and cracked pepper dance in the glass, while the medium to full-bodied mouthfeel is layered and deep, showing the kind of complexity on the finish that only truly old vines can achieve.
