2015 Shafer Relentless (Syrah/Petite Syrah)

Media Reviews

Antonio Galloni

Time has done wonders for the 2015 Relentless, especially in softening some of the tannins that were so imposing last year. A powerful, rich wine, the 2015 possesses terrific fruit intensity and overall energy. Cherry jam and pomegranate fruit character give the 2015 its decidedly red-fruited profile. The 2015 is not as complex or nuanced as other vintages have been, but it is absolutely delicious and a real pleasure to taste. 93 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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. 95+ points
