Tasting Note: The 2011 Ritual is the fifth vintage of this wine and again a rock star of Relic’s portfolio! The wine jumps from the glass with a mélange of red fruits, potpourri and orchids, hinting at the palate to come. The mouthfeel is round and rich, with beautiful acidity providing focus and shape to the ripe flavors of raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, sage, violet and cracked pepper. The finish is powerful and long, and shows the delicate tannins and easy drinkability – the magic potion that is Ritual. Unfined and unfiltered. 18 barrels produced.
