    April 8, 2017 - Supple, vibrant, elegant, reflecting cooler Nor Cal climate rather than Central Coast offerings. Over 15% but not a hint of heat. I expected this bottle to be fantastic and it delivered. Drink at cellar temp. It's too bad winning WOTY drove prices up on all vintages of Relentless.

    March 5, 2017 - The best of the bunch. Pop and pour fabulous! Decanted and an hour later...indescribable. May be my favorite of all time. Paired with a filet. OMG.
