Product Description

WA (94-97) JS 95 WS 94 Vinous 93 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Syrah Relentless, which has not yet been bottled, 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."

According to James Suckling - "This is very fresh and balanced with a dense and silky texture plus lots of violet, berry and hints of sandalwood. It’s full and very silky. Long and intense. Hints of smoky, spicy, wonderful fruit. Lots of tannin but shows an intensity and power. Needs time to soften, but beautiful."

According to Wine Spectator - "A deeply structured blend that combines power with richness. Aromas of blackberry and crushed rock open to layered, com - plex flavors of black cherry, espresso and smoky cracked pepper. Tannins are big but fleshy. Syrah and Petite Sirah. Best from 2017 through 2028."

According to Antonio Galloni - "The exuberance of the year comes through in spades in the 2012 Relentless, a ripe, flashy wine loaded with pure Napa Valley richness and intensity. Dark red/blue-toned fruit melds into spices, wild herbs and tobacco. The 2012 stands out for its open personality, soft contours and terrific overall balance." 15.8% ABV.
