2012 Tensley - Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard Santa Barbara
Sale Price: $38.95
Wine Advocate: 94 - 96+ Points
"I wasn’t able taste through a full lineup of Tensley’s 2012, but what I was able to taste was certainly impressive. Overflowing with fruit and texture, the 2012 Syrah Colson Canyon has a stacked mid-palate, sweet tannin and a seamless, pure feel that I suspect will be hard to resist in its youth yet also age gracefully. It should certainly compete with, if not surpass, the fantastic 2011. Drink 2014-2027. One of the rising superstars in California, Joey Tensley continues to focus on single vineyard Syrahs and Rhone blends from Santa Barbara County. All of the wines are treated identically in the cellar and see just under a year in neutral oak (the Colson Canyon sees a small amount of new oak). They show their origin beautifully and have distinctive, unique personalities. In addition, they age beautifully and continue to be offered at fantastic prices. In short, don’t miss these wines."
