This wine honors long-time Shafer Winemaker Elias Fernandez and his relentless pursuit of quality. Sourced from a single ridgetop vineyard adjacent to the southern border of Stags Leap District, the grapes for Relentless are a "field blend" of Syrah and Petite Sirah.
"This is our sixth vintage of this field blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah and as the vines mature, the wine has evolved into a more complex style – aromas and flavors of blackberry, spice, chocolate, cedar, liqueur, and black licorice. Relentless will always be a blockbuster, but this release is continued evidence of a trend toward more layers of dark, rich aromas and flavors."
