K&L Notes

This wine is an excellent followup to the 2008 vintage, which was Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" for 2012. A field blend including 18% Petite Sirah, the grapes for Relentless are sourced from a ridgetop site and a foothills site along the Vaca Mountains just south of the Stags Leap district. The wine spent 30 months in all new 60-gallon French oak barrels. From winemaker Elias Fernandez: "The 2009 offers dense, enticing aromas and flavors of purple/black fruit, smoked meat, spice, incense, black plums and berry. Even at this young age it offers elegance wrapped in extract, with ripe tannins and good structure for aging. In the mouth it’s full and rich from the first taste through the long finish."
