December 27, 2016 - I thinking this is slightly past its prime. Still drinking well, but the tannins are gone, leaving a lot of heavy fruit. It started out with a heavy hit of acid, which blew off after 30 minutes.
I think I prefer the Relentless at a younger point in time.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 6, 2016 - This is a seriously tasty wine. It is a huge wine, but the deft winemaking skills are certainly notable here.
Big and massive tannins, just entering into a window of drinkability, alongside black fruits, tar, peppery spice, and sweet oakiness.
drinking well now through 2025.

August 8, 2016 - I can't add much to all the previous notes. This delicious wine is powerful yet elegant, fruit balanced with spice and fine tannins, and and enticing in the glass and on the pallate. A group of us loved this wine as we enjoyed it wth grilled steaks. I believe, properly stored, this Syrah has many years left to enjoy.
