Tensley Syrah Santa Barbara County Colson Canyon Vineyard 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The warm days and cool nights of the Colson Canyon Vineyard always produce concentrated, fruit-forward wines rich in notes of blackberries, jammy black fruits, graphite and violets. This vintage also shows hints of mouthwatering red berries and plums that bring in an extra layer of brightness and complexity. The finish is long and lingering with appealing notes coffee and vanilla. Drink this wine now or age it up to ten years. 1,620 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 93 points and 'Highly Recommended by Wine Spectator: Strikes a nice balance between the dense, extracted, spicy, peppery dark berry flavors and the touch of loamy earth. Fine-grained and graceful. Drink now through 2023.
