The 2004 Relentless is one of the more elegant styles they have produced. The wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple color to the rim fine notes of blackberries graphite pepper and some vanilla. Subtle smoke oodles of fruit in... The 2004 Relentless is one of the more elegant styles they have produced. The wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple color to the rim fine notes of blackberries graphite pepper and some vanilla. Subtle smoke oodles of fruit in a deep full-bodied style with sweet tannins and a silky finish are present. Despite its exuberance and front-end loaded style I suspect this wine will last 12-15+ years.

(80/20 blend of syrah and petite sirah) Medium ruby. Cassis blackberry black cherry violet and minerals on the nose along with some nutty oak. Then sweet and penetrating with ripe black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors... (80/20 blend of syrah and petite sirah) Medium ruby. Cassis blackberry black cherry violet and minerals on the nose along with some nutty oak. Then sweet and penetrating with ripe black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors nicely framed by spicy oak. Finishes with fairly strong slightly rustic tannins and excellent length.
