Shafer Relentless 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
This is a stunning, vibrantly robust and intense wine, big, bold and reductive and blended with 3% Petite Sirah. Floral aromas take on meaty, gamy overtones amidst black licorice, tar and juicy strawberry, the tannins silky and supportive and the finish leathery and spicy.
Floral blackberry and espresso aromas lead to densely complex flavors of dark plum, licorice and mineral in this structured red, well-framed by taut tannins and lively acidity. Should benefit from time in the cellar. Syrah and Petite Sirah. Best from 2019 through 2027. 3,300 cases made.
