Shafer 2006 Proprietary Red Blend Relentless

"Another outstanding Relentless from Shafer. As usual, the wine is massively constructed and extraordinarily rich and deep in flavor, offering waves of grilled blackberries and cherries, red currants, licorice, bacon, cola, black pepper and other spices. The tannins are very big, but completely ripe and sweet. Mainly Syrah with 16% Petite Sirah, this wine will age, but it's really best now with hearty foods, like short ribs or lamb." - Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points. [+]
