95+pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "Blended of 90% Syrah and 10% Petite Sirah, the deep purple-black colored 2015 Relentless has a total rock-star nose of flamboyant blackberry pie, plum preserves, mulberries and licorice scents with hints of Sichuan pepper, hoisin, Indian spices and smoked meats plus a waft of raspberry leaves.  Very big, rich, full and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate packs in black fruits and exotic spices layers with a firm, rounded tannin frame and just enough freshness to carry off the long, opulent finish."  Oct 2018

Jeb Dunnuck:  "The saturated purple-colored 2015 Relentless is a Syrah-dominated blend that includes 10% Petite Sirah.  This cuvée was first made in 1999 and the Syrah comes from a site in the hills above Oakville Knoll. Boasting terrific, full-throttle notes of black fruits, violets, and tapenade, it shows surprising elegance and purity on the palate, has fine, silky tannins, and superb balance.  It’s a brilliant wine that has both power and elegance.  Drink it over the coming decade."  Jan 2019

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."
