Red Wine by Relic Wine Cellars from Central Coast, California. This is Relic Wine Cellars’ final release from the Putnam Vineyard in Annapolis in the deep Sonoma Coast, but what a way to go out! 2016 provided near-perfect conditions to ripen the fruit, and the vines produced the best wine yet from this coastal vineyard. Aromas of cherry pit, blackberry flowers, sassafras, lavender, sage, white pepper and exotic spices fill the glass. The palate is dense with flavor and balanced by lush, soft tannins, yet is taut enough to carry the intense finish to great lengths.
