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.
About the Winery
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.
