A blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah, Shafer's Relentless is a testament to the winery's commitment to these varieties despite their domination of the Cab market. The wine shows the huge power and balance of Shafer's Cabernets, with a different flavor profile. It's soft and gentle but complex in ripe tannins, with blackberry, cherry, cassis, cola, red licorice, sweet tobacco and rich Asian spice flavors. Drink now through 2010.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
