This is only the second vintage of this very special wine that represents a long-time dream come true for Tensley – a blend made entirely from the winery's own vineyards. This wine is a blend of Syrah and Mourvedre from Tensley's Estate Vineyard as well as Grenache and Syrah from Colson Canyon Vineyard, which Tensley recently purchased. This wine is bold and beautifully balanced, showing the best each vineyard has to offer. From Colson Canyon come the deep, dark berry notes, chocolate, and lush mouthfeel while the Tensley Vineyard brings in savory, earthy notes and deep, dark notes of purple plums. This wine is approachable now but will also age well over the next 8 to 10 years. 

Blend: 85% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 1% Mourvedre

"Polished and well-structured, with fragrant black raspberry, crushed stone and garrigue aromas that open to refined, layered blueberry and savory licorice flavors that linger toward harmonious tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre."
