Tensley Colson Canyon Syrah 2015
VinousA powerful, explosive wine, the 2015 Syrah Tensley Vineyard is one of the highlights in this range. Bold and dark in expression, with tons of supporting tannin, the Tensley exudes intensity in all of its dimensions. The 33% whole clusters are nearly buried by the sheer richness of the fruit. This is an impressive showing.
Wine SpectatorThere's plenty of power and torque in this inky red. Aromas of ripe blueberry, tar and licorice open to complex flavors of smoky plum and peppered beef. The tannins are big but refined. Drink now through 2027. 550 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe darkest colored in the lineup and from tiny yields, the 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard sports a glass-staining purple color to go with rugged, sage brush, wild herbs and purple fruit characteristics. It has plenty of tannin, and is less obviously sweet than the 2014.
