Tensley Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard 2015
VM94-97: "Another highlight, the 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard brings together so many of the elements that make Tensley's Syrahs so compelling. Intense in its aromatics and palate feel, the 2015 hits all the right notes. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, raspberry jam and a dollop of French oak are some of the signatures. Because of the low yields, the new oak is a bit high in 2015, but all the elements are very nicely married. The Colson Canyon is shaping up to be another gem from Joey Tensley.'"
Tensley was established in 1998 in the scenic town of Los Olivos in the heart of Santa Barbara County wine country. The family owned and operated winery produces five single-vineyard Syrahs. The rugged Colson Canyon vineyard delivers dark, extracted wines. This intense and structured Syrah has a touch of French oak. Named twice as a Wine Spectator Top 100.
