Product Description

The 2016 Tenet The Pundit Syrah is deep purple in color with ruby highlights. Blueberry jam compote with soy and miso undertone aromas are complemented by a brambly, cinnamon and a subtle meaty character. A very smooth mouthfeel glides into a long silky finish with flavors of juicy blueberry, hints of tobacco and subtle gamey undertones.

Varietal Composition: 90 Syrah, 4 Grenache, 4 Mourvèdre, 2 Viognier (co-fermented with Syrah)
Appellation: Columbia Valley AVA
Aging: 13 months in oak, 77 percent in neutral French and American oak, 23 percent in new French oak

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Pinches of Grenache (4%), Mourvèdre (4%) and Viognier (2%) round out this wine, providing lovely accents. The aromas show notes of flower, orange peel, raspberry candy, dried herb and cherry. The palate is full bodied and rich, with the tannins bringing some grip. Raspberry notes linger on the finish." -SS, 10/1/18

90 Points - Vinous
"Bright, full ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate and spices; less expressive and wild than the 2015 version was at the same stage. Concentrated, silky and fine-grained, displaying sexy spice and violet lift to the concentrated dark berry and licorice flavors. I find more sweetness and primary fruit character--and more generosity of texture--than in the 2015 version of this bottling. The long finish hints at chocolatey ripeness but also shows lovely violet lift and a fine dusting of tannins. This needs aeration or a year or two in the cellar to shed its reductive quality. (I should note that a second bottle was a bit less generous and sweet.) (14.5% alcohol)" -ST, Nov/2018
