Food Pairings for Shafer Relentless Napa Valley
93 points Antonio Galloni (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: 2012-2019. (Dec 2011)
