Shafer Relentless Napa Valley 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Big, expressive nose of blackberry, black currant, and bacon fat
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Long, fine grained finish of black raspberry, spice, dried herbs, and chocolate layers
Here's a big, expressive wine and it's delicious. There's dense layers of fruit and a really amazing, fine grained texture. Relentless is a beautifully made blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah that runs about $60. Open a bottle with good friends and a good meal. Raise a glass!
