Shafer Relentless Napa Valley
Description: 96 points Jeb Dunnuck
Checking in as a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petit Sirah, the 2014 Syrah Relentless is a killer bottle of wine that offers decadent notes of blackcurrants, barbecued meats, seaweed wrapper, lavender, exotic pepper, and liquid smoke. This is a rich, unctuous Rhône inspired blend that packs serious amounts of fruit and richness, yet the elegant, forward style of the vintage keeps it silky, polished and incredibly drinkable. While I haven't had every vintage of this cuvee it was first made in 1999, my money is on this being up with the top handful of vintages. It's a blockbuster today if you’re oak adverse, give bottles 2-3 years but will keep for two decades.
