    August 1, 2021 - Drinking fantastic right now. I'm going to hold onto our last bottle for a few years to see how it ages. Classic Relic style and great Cabernet expression.

    May 23, 2019 - I’m a big fan of Quivet’s Kenefick Ranch cab so I decided to give this cab a shot in light of the source - 94% Kenefick Ranch and 6% Corona Vineyard. Dark purple fruit - blackberry, currants, dark raspberry, and dark cherry. Really smooth mid-palate coupled with solid depth/concentration and a nice purity - medium plus body. Nice flavors of dark berries, baking spices/licorice, and a mineral/graphite component. Fairly long finish. Popped/poured but drank out of a decanter for a couple hours. Improved with time and took around two hours to really open-up. A nice wine - in my opinion in line with the 94 rating from Parker and WS. 100% cab.

    August 29, 2018 - Deep ruby color. Black currant, cassis and raspberry provides a lovely black/red fruit component while toast and vanilla show off the 100% new oak treatment. Licorice and baking spice provide a solid depth to this wine. Medium+ body with slightly astringent tannins. Medium acid with a medium finish. A nice wine that may benefit from a few more years in bottle to work out its tannins rough edges.
