Shafer's 2014 Relentless is fabulous. The most expressive and varietally expressive of the three vintages of Relentless I tasted. In 2014, Relentless has 11% Petite Sirah, which, along with the personality of the year, kicks up the aromatics and flavors in a meaningful way. Lavender, mint, violets and crème de cassis notes are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 2014 is shaping up to be a real gem. (AG)
Always a wine of great size and high ripeness, Relentless is as bold and indelicate as ever. It is introduced by very dense aromas of dark earth, blackberries, dried plums and pepper with enormously extracted flavors to match, and, while it heats up as it goes and teeters right at the brink of extravagant excess, it will never be accused of wanting for character. It is nothing less than an out-and-out blunderbuss that will overpower all but the heartiest foods once allowed the half-dozen years required for its ample tannins to ease, and, even when poured with the most savory roasted meats, it will still be the dominant presence at the table.
