Jeb Dunnick, 96-99 Points

"A not yet bottled blend of 81% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre, 5% Petite Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Grenache, fermented with 47% whole clusters, the 2016 Syrah Rätsel 16 is an inky colored beauty that has another level of depth and richness over the 2015. Black raspberries, cassis, white pepper, white chocolate, and hints of bacon fat give way to a full-bodied, seamless, elegant wine that has terrific freshness and purity, ultra-fine tannin, and a huge finish. Not too dissimilar from the 2014s, which have the same supple, sexy, and approachable style, it should drink reasonably well right out of the gate and cruise for 15-20 years in cool cellars."

Winemaking: Vineyard sources include 47% Eleven Confessions, 38% The Third Twin, 13% Cumulus and 2% Molly Aida. The wine was fermented with 47% whole cluster and aged for around 23 months in French oak, 47% new.
