Shafer Syrah Relentless 2010, 750mL (WA97) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Shafer Syrah Relentless

750mL

Vintage: 2010
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA97
Rated 97 points by the Wine Advocate: `The extraordinary 2010 Relentless (96% Syrah and 4% Petite Sirah) offers up notes of graphite, subtle wood charcoal, barbecue smoke, blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, and hints of spice and meat. This full-bodied, supple-textured, exceptionally rich Syrah already has a certain accessibility, but should age well for two decades.?` -- Robert Parker in Issue #209 of the Wine Advocate.More Information about this producer: `This was a fascinating tasting with one of the superstar reference point/iconic wineries in all of California. Shafer`s Relentless project has been a huge success since the debut. Blending Syrah and Petite Sirah, aging it for a long time in French oak, and not compromising on any element of the winemaking process has put them at the top of the Rhone Ranger sweepstakes. From the Stags Leap District, the Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five was named by the Shafers to honor the generation and a half of the family that has been involved in this winery`s success. Turning to Shafer`s Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon is akin to entering one of the world`s museums of liquid art. This is unquestionably one of California-s, and the world`s, most iconic and greatest wines. When Chateau Latour bought the Araujo estate, I thought the entire value of the Shafers and of this particular vineyard probably jumped by 30-50% because of that purchase. This is a first-growth wine from a magical site, and it has been one of the top half dozen or so California Cabernet Sauvignons in every vintage since the early nineties. That`s a remarkable track record. In every vintage it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged an uncommonly long time (32 months) in 100% French oak, yet you would never know that. The Shafers remain disarmingly modest about what they have achieved, but this is utterly profound, world-class wine that any wine lovers who enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon need to sample at least once in their life.`
