    September 2, 2020 - Has been a bit since I’ve had a Relentless. This one seems to lack some of the depth of previous bottles and vintages. Still a very nice wine. The tannins have mellowed but there’s still a solid line of oak through the palate of plums and blackberries.

    June 18, 2020 - Really outstanding and delicious. Every sip, drove me back to a swirl a snif and another sip. Yum

    February 20, 2020 - You know, back in 2017 I specifically told my future self to give this a good long decant. Did I heed past self? Of course not. But while this still comes across quite young, and has the saturated color of a wine that looks like it was just bottled, and still has some serious tannins, it is starting to settle into its own future self. Still showing that nice combination of currants and dark blue fruit, with oak and plums emerging on a long finish. Let's see if I can hold out for another five years before opening the last bottle...

    December 1, 2019 - Leaner and less fruit-forward than other vintages. Smooth tannins. No need to age longer.

    15.8% ABV; 91% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah
