“Sexy aromas of blackberry, cracked pepper, flowers and spices.”
92 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
Why to buy: Since launching Relic in 2001, Michael Hirby has been named one of the top-10 rising stars for small-production wines in California.
Characteristics: Ritual is a unique blend of grapes, including old vine Carignane and Petite Sirah, a rare combination for a Napa wine. 2010 is a particularly dark, rich vintage, with deep concentration, floral aromatics and hugely ripe fruit that can rival big, spicy foods. We love it with sticky, sweet Korean barbecued spare ribs, Thai chicken wings or any other spicy meat dish.
Varietals: 47% Mourvedre, 21% Carignane, 15% Grenache, 12% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah
Relic Wine Cellars is the dream of husband and wife Mike Hirby and Schatzi Throckmorton, starting with just three barrels of Pinot Noir and the intent to utilize both ancient and modern winemaking techniques. Their goal is to put their wine passion in a bottle, by making wines that are a natural expression of the vineyard.
