Shafer Vineyards Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2012

$89.99

Shafer Vineyards legendary Relentless from Napa Valley now available for a limited time only. 97 points Robert Parker:   "The 2012 Syrah Relentless is a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah. In keeping with this amazing year, it’s full-bodied, juicy, succulent, flamboyant, with blueberry and blackberry fruit galore, lots of glycerin and a massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness or astringency characterize this stunning wine. This should turn out to be a great, great Rhône Ranger when released in a year or so. "...This was a fascinating tasting with one of the superstar reference point/iconic wineries in all of California. Shafer's Relentless project has been a huge success since the debut. Blending Syrah and Petite Sirah, aging it for a long time in French oak, and not compromising on any element of the winemaking process has put them at the top of the Rhone Ranger sweepstakes."

Powerful notes of bloody meat, dark fruit, flowers, vanilla and baking spices. Black and blue fruits with baking spice on the palate. Big wine. The nearly 16% alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Drink now.

With age it really shows the traditional Rhône notes of petrol and oil on the nose. Make no mistake, pure Napa on the palate.
