Deep ruby-red. Sexy aromas of blackberry, cracked pepper, flowers and spices. Cool, spicy and aromatic in the mouth, with blue and black fruit flavors lifted by flowers and white pepper and given structure by firm tannins. This bottling features t... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2010 Relic Ritual 750ml
The 2010 Ritual is a stunner. Darker and richer than past releases, we went for major complexity of flavors and deep concentration, while retaining Ritual’s trademark elegance, fruit and aromatics. Rare Mourvedre forms the core of the wine here, while old vine Carignane and Petite Sirah from the Frediani Vineyard contribute an added depth and creaminess. Aromas of blackberry, strawberry jam, white pepper, rosemary, clove and hot stones burst from the glass. The palate immediately hits you with both density and a fat, voluminous feel, framed by fine tannins that allow the flavors to expand into a lush, long finish.
