Shafer Relentless 2015

External Review:

Firm, rich and dense, this combines power with finesse, offering a deep mix of chewy dark berry, dark chocolate, black licorice, road tar, tobacco and loamy earth flavors, tightly wound and leading to a long finish. Syrah and Petite Sirah. Best from 2014 through 2026.

[Lamb burgers] opened c leathery and black fruit on the nose later developed with distinct red meat aroma. Great structure/ brooding while maintaining some balance. On the palate dense black fruit, mocha, and bbq. Has life ahead of it. But drinking nicely now.

Freshly cut flowers, violets, mint and licorice all jump from the glass in the 2010 Relentless. In 2010, the Relentless is quite a bit more varietally expressive than the 2009, but then again, it is almost exclusively Syrah. A wine of gorgeous aromatic intensity, the 2010 impresses for its considerable energy, focus and freshness. The blend is 96% Syrah and 4% Petite Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2025.

The extraordinary 2010 Relentless (96% Syrah and 4% Petite Sirah) offers up notes of graphite, subtle wood charcoal, barbecue smoke, blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, and hints of spice and meat. This full-bodied, supple-textured, exceptionally rich Syrah already has a certain accessibility, but should age well for two decades.

The 2009 Relentless is a big, explosive wine bursting with dark red fruit, flowers and spices. This is a young wine with plenty of life, but the 100% new French oak is a bit more obvious here, which suggests the wine may not quite have the stuffing t... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Relentless is a big, explosive wine bursting with dark red fruit, flowers and spices. This is a young wine with plenty of life, but the 100% new French oak is a bit more obvious here, which suggests the wine may not quite have the stuffing to support the oak. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding brightness and lift. In 2009 the blend is 82% Syrah and 18% Petit Sirah. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2019.

Brimming with dark, rich berry, loamy earth, crushed rock and espresso. This is a powerful expression that is also tapered and sophisticated, ending with all kinds of subtle nuances that come alive on the finish. Syrah and Petite Sirah. Best from 2013 through 2024.
