    January 3, 2017 - My first bottle of Relentless. Didn't know what to expect, but I am guessing it met expectations, but didn't exceed. Great nose, but the fruit didn't completely match it, even after a 2 hour decant. I enjoyed it, but at that price, I believe I have some better options.

    December 25, 2016 - Barely pushed into 93 range for me. Solid bottle of wine and I agree with the other reviewers. Less pencil/graphite and more blue fruit, maybe a little too much so it needs at least 2-3 years before I drink my last one. Medium finish.

    November 5, 2016 - Amazing wine, strong flavor, spicy and fruity at the same time, great nose after it opens up. Most drink with a big meal, steak.
