Shafer Relentless 2017
Wine Spectator: "Deep and powerfully built, with a rich and polished texture that highlights wild berry and blueberry flavors that show notes of espresso, smoky beef and black pepper. Finishes with big but refined tannins. Syrah and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2030." Apr 2021
Winery: "The first pour offers an endlessly rich density of meaty, smokey and dense fruit aromas while the wine saturates the mouth with deep flavors of black licorice, bramble fruit, black pepper, allspice, bacon and char. All of this opulence is energized with underlying acidity and bound together with structured, ripe tannins built for very long term ageability."
