    July 20, 2019 - An outstanding petite sirah. Extremely well balanced for a young petite, very drinkable.

    May 18, 2019 - Dark on the nose, blackberry and mocha, mirrored in the palate, but more dark cherry, not quite as heavy as I remember - really nice balance and a moderate finish. Still an excellent wine from Relic and excellent QPR.

    May 10, 2019 - Someday, I might have a Relic Petite Sirah Old Vines that matches the 2009. Until then, I'll continue to buy each vintage because they continue to deliver a bold, full-bodied wine without being over the top. Stands up to strong foods (even hot curry dishes) with the black fruits and touch of barnyard.

    May 2, 2019 - Tasted @ RELIC: this is a huge monster, very black and intense, almost a SQN intensity, little forest floor on the nose lots of tannin, intense cassis and black currant. Wow. Can it get too big? No way. Exceptional.

    *This was undoubtedly one of the highlights of my most recent Napa trip, the winemaker Mike Hirby (previously of Realm) and his team are making a broad selection of small production wines, all of which are really, really excellent. Try some if if you can. The breadth of their portfolio is refreshing - awesome stuff*
