Bottle Description

89% Syrah, 11% Petite Sirah from a small site along the Vaca Mountains, just south of Stags Leap District. It is aged for 30 months in 100% new French barrels (Troncais & Allier). This was the third in a string of warm, sun-soaked vintages from spring through early autumn. The consistency of daytime heat and evening coolness created a model growing season in which the fruit was harvested with abundant colour and concentration, along with enticing, rich aromatics. 15.8%alc

The 2014 Relentless, made up of 89% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah, is deep garnet-purple with a pronounced nose of black plums, blackberries and black cherries with touches of fragrant earth, black pepper and Indian spices plus a waft of lavender. Very big, full-bodied, opulent and laden with vibrant black fruits and spicy layers, it has firm, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and peppery.
