Tenet Wines The Pundit Syrah 2014
Wine AdvocateThe finest vintage of this cuvee to date (it's only the second year for the cuvee though), the 2014 Syrah The Pundit has loads of ripe dark fruits, charcoal, smoked herbs and licorice in a concentrated, rich, yet always balanced and fresh style. Made from 88% Syrah, 6% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, aged mostly in French oak (which is a positive change from the American oak used for the 2013), with a small part in concrete, drink this pleasure-bent effort over the coming 4-5 years.
Wine Spectator Bright and expressive, with smoky notes tinging the blackberry and spice flavors, lingering gently. Drink now through 2019. 9,658 cases made.
