International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 168

(15.8% alcohol; an 82/18 blend of syrah and petite sirah): Saturated bright ruby. Blackberry, flint, mocha, licorice, bitter chocolate and roast coffee on the nose, with violet and pepper accents emerging with air. Densely packed, concentrated and surprisingly dry, with deep flavors of dark chocolate and dried fruits complicated by a floral element. Finishes with broad, slightly edgy tannins and excellent saline length.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 204

The 2009 Relentless (Syrah/Petite Sirah) wraps around the palate with serious depth. Dark cherries, grilled herbs and menthol take shape in the glass followed by sweet floral notes that add lift on the finish. A rich, round and voluptuous wine, the 2009 impresses for its overall sense of harmony. It isn't terribly varietal, but is quite pretty if taken on its own terms. The 2009 is 82% Syrah and 18% Petite Sirah. Personally, I prefer the subsequent vintages, where Syrah plays more of a leading role. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Brimming with dark, rich berry, loamy earth, crushed rock and espresso. This is a powerful expression that is also tapered and sophisticated, ending with all kinds of subtle nuances that come alive on the finish. Syrah and Petite Sirah.
