2016 Shafer "Relentless" Napa Valley Syrah

SKU #1434377 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I’ve consistently loved the Relentless cuvée from this team, which is always from a single vineyard and is Syrah-dominated, with about 10% Petite Sirah in the blend. The 2016 Relentless is sensational. Dense purple-hued with a sweet bouquet of jammy blackberries, ground pepper, charcoal, and some smoky, meaty notes, it’s a full-bodied, powerful, yet plush, even elegant Syrah that does everything right.

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This combination of 90% Syrah and 10% Petite Sirah is memorable in its mix of wild herb and violet. Bright, thick layers of blackberry and blueberry dance along a mineral-laden core of crushed rock, wet stone and supple tannins. (VB) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Strikingly fresh mountain herbs and blueberries, as well as a cedary and dark-stony edge with earthy nuances, too. The palate has a gently grainy feel with sleek, vibrant berry aromas and delivers a striking mix of berries and chocolate at the long, detailed finish. A blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Petite Sirah. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Relentless is a rich, dense, powerful wine. Thirty-two months in barrel yields a sumptuous Syrah-based wine rich in texture and loaded with personality. Dark red fruit, cedar, tobacco, menthol and dried herbs add complexity to a Syrah-based red built on texture and weight. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A gutsy red, with a polished texture and expressive blueberry and blackberry flavors, accented by smoky sage, espresso and pepper notes and finishing with well-framed tannins. Syrah and Petite Sirah. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
