93 points, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Nose, palate and pairing: Ripe, delicious blackberry fruit, good structure and plenty of tannins to age for years. Pair with a grilled dry-aged steak, herby new potatoes and greens in a mustard-rich vinaigrette.

The backstory: Winemaker Michael Hirby began Relic in 2001 to make wines using both old and new production methods, including the oldest method of them all, foot stomping the grapes. The Cabernet offering, Artefact, is a result of attention to detail in the vineyards during the 2008 growing season, as the vintage endured stingy rains, extended frost and heat spikes. Although yields were affected, fruit was concentrated and the result is a dense wine that will drink well for the next 15 years.

Varietals: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah

Nose: Ripe and fruity, with sweet spice, pepper and chocolate notes

Palate: Juicy black fruit, flowers, herbs, pepper, cocoa and full ripe tannins

Alcohol: 15.0%

Appellation: Napa Valley, California

Brand: Relic

Origin: United States
