94-97pts-WA: The 2012 Syrah Relentless, which has not yet been bottled, is a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah. In keeping with this amazing year, it’s full-bodied, juicy, succulent, flamboyant, with blueberry and blackberry fruit galore, lots of glycerin and a massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness or astringency characterize this stunning wine. This should turn out to be a great, great Rhône Ranger when released in a year or so.--Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com #215, 10/2014 

Winery Notes: This is a classic Relentless offering tantalizing, vibrant aromas and flavors of Syrah meatiness and a juicy core of black plum, dark chocolate, smoke, white pepper, blackberry, and crème brulee. The mouthfeel is full and liquid-velvet smooth with a finish that lingers on and on. This vintage will offer even more riches with more time in the cellar. --Elias Fernandez, Winemaker
