The current release, the 2007 Relentless, exhibits a dense purple color as well as notes of grilled herbs, tar, blackberries, cassis, pepper and jus de viande. This full-bodied powerhouse should last at least 15-20 years.
A gorgeous wine, ripe and juicy, with black cherry, plum and currant flavors joined by spicy cedar, graphite, tobacco and dried sage. Full-bodied and powerful, yet retrained and ageworthy.
... strikes one as, above all, tannic and dry. Then the blackberry, black cherry, dark baker’s chocolate, herb tea and smoked meat flavors kick in, impressing with their complexity. It’s a distinctive wine, quite unlike anything else...
..Lush, sweet and concentrated, with fine-grained, rather polite dark berry and pepper flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. The lightly musky quality adds sex appeal to this very young wine. Finishes with broad, suave tannins.
Blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah.
