Shafer Vineyards Relentless Proprietary Red Blend 2017 Rated 94JD
- Calculated at Checkout
While I don't think the 2017 Relentless will match the 2018, it's nevertheless a beautiful Syrah that offers lots of smoky dark berry fruits, barbecue notes, spice, and meaty nuances in a rich, pure, nicely textured, medium to full-bodied package. It's going to evolve gracefully for a solid 10-12 years. Drink 2021-2033.
Wine Tasting Notes
The elegant 2017 offers a wealth of aromas and flavors - black plum, herbs, grilled game, vanilla, leather, herbs, river stone, and spice. The richness, balance, and vibrancy of the wine is mouth-filling and soul-satisfying on every level with ripe, silky tannins that offer the promise of greater pleasures with years of cellaring.
