Wine Pairing – Lamb Shank with Syrah


There’s a vivid contrast in the delicacy of lamb meat rendered rich and robust in this traditional recipe that bursts with exquisite flavours.

In careful preparation the lamb shank is spread with a mixture of garlic, rosemary, paprika and ground black pepper and left overnight.

Next day it’s roasted until golden brown, then stewed in a gravy of lamb bones, carrots, onions, garlic, rosemary, bay leaves, celery, black pepper and olive oil that’s taken two days to slowly build up its deep, resounding array of taste sensations.

Wine Pairing

A rich dish like this invites a powerful wine, and l am settling for the American Shafer Relentless, a full-bodied Syrah with big power and great balance.


This wine honors long-time Shafer Winemaker Elias Fernandez and his relentless pursuit of quality. 

Relentless is a blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah that originates in a rugged, sloping vineyard planted in the chaparral foothills of the Vaca Mountains, along Napa Valley’s drier, cooler southeast corridor.

The soul of the wine, though, comes from its namesake, our longtime winemaker, Elias Fernandez, who the Shafer family honors with this proprietary blend for his relentless pursuit of quality.

Vineyard Location
A small ridgetop site and a foothills site along the Vaca Mountains just south of Stags Leap District

Varietal Composition – 89% Syrah, 11% Petite Sirah

Cooperage – 30 months in 100% new 60-gallon French oak barrels (Allier & Tronçais)

Alcohol – 15.8%
