ROBERT PARKER The Wine Advocate - 93 points - Drink: NOW
"The 2006 Shiraz (97%)-Viognier (3%) The Relic was also sourced from 98-year-old vines with yields of 0.5 tons per acre. It spent 24 months in seasoned French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of smoke, violets, Asian spices, black cherry, and wild blueberry. On the palate this medium-bodied, elegant Shiraz has a silky texture, luscious fruit, and impeccable balance. Dan Standish, who started his namesake winery in 1999, was once a winemaker at Torbreck and, like Dave Powell, is a fan of Rhone wines."
