2013 Tenet Wines The Pundit Syrah, 90 points

This deep ruby-colored Syrah, which includes some fruit from the exciting new Rocks appellation, offers perfumed scents of crushed blackberry, cassis, licorice and violet. Its very primary, intense flavors of black fruits and cocoa powder are given a youthful edge by penetrating acidity. (ST)
