If Standish's Relic is the feminine side of Shiraz, this is in a more masculine vein, with slightly coarser tannins and more weight, but still possessing great intensity without any heaviness. Cassis, blueberry and black olive flavors are tinged with hints of asphalt and espresso, leading into a warm, lingering finish. Drink now-2025. collapse

Deep garnet-purple colored, it is vibrant and floral at this stage with notes of chocolate, creme de cassis, game, mint and anise. The palate is fine and complex, with a good backbone of high acid, medium level of fine-grained tannins and a long harmonious finish. It’s drinking now and should continue to do so until 2020+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

Cassis, blackberry, sweet oak and meaty aromas lead into a full bodied palate that is balanced, decadent and long and despite the lush fruit, there's solid structure and tannin coming through on the long finish. collapse

Seductive, highly perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote, cola, sassafras and rose oil, with a slow-building peppery quality. Spicy and focused, offering pure, sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors along with notes of floral pastille and spicecake. Alluringly juicy and fresh, with excellent finishing lift, thrust and persistence. Plenty complex now but I'd hold this for another five to seven years. -Josh Raynolds collapse
