User Reviews for Shafer Relentless Syrah

Winemaker's Notes:

"#1 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2012: The aromatics are full and distinct, with loads of dark berry and charcoal, then this unfolds touches of black cherry, raspberry and red and black licorice on the palate, sailing along and firming nicely on the finish. Shows all the muscle, density, richness and range of flavor found in many Shafer reds, yet takes it to another level in this vintage. The best Relentless yet. Syrah and Petite Sirah...96" WS 02/12 "Bright, full ruby. Slightly reduced, musky aromas and flavors of blackberry and game lifted by a violet topnote. Creamy, sweet and pliant but shapely and reserved as well; fuller than the One Point Five cabernet but without quite that wine's depth. Finishes with broad, ripe tannins and considerable richness. Wears its high alcohol gracefully...92" IWC 06/12
