The Pundit shows nice tension between ripe dark flavors and a crisp lively structure. It has outstanding notes of black raspberries, violets, spice and vanilla bean. Medium-bodied richness and an elegant seamless texture lead to a great finish. Ripe and rounded, it should put a smile on anyone's face over the coming 4-5 years. A Pure Joy. The winemakers for this wine, and Le Fervent, collaborated with each other giving the Fervent a Washington flair, and the Pundit a French Finesse. Try them side-by-side, it makes for a fun tasting!
