Somewhat closed aromatics even after 2 hours aeration, but rich, ripe, explosive redfruits and dark fruits, some tannins remain, long finish, very fine Syrah!! — a month ago

OGT Santa Barbara County Syrah 2004

[En magnum.] This Tensley club magnum has really held up well, dark and red fruit aromas and flavors, rich and full-bodied, but not overripe, medium-long finish, lovely CA Syrah! — 6 months ago

Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah 2021

RP and Co. jacked up this Syrah. It’s ok, but wifey and I feel that this is nowhere near the 97 RP lavished upon it. They must have suffered the ID-I0T error. Better Syrah’s are everywhere. Thankfully we only purchased one bottle. Nothing much to see here… — 5 months ago

@Ron R visited their tasting room a few years back. Wines were ok ,but as you say, not extraordinary.


All Blocks Tensley Vineyards Red Blend 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Red Wine All Blocks, Tensley's Grenache-based wine, is a knock-out. Bright red-toned fruit, blood orange, spice, menthol and cinnamon are all dialed up. This succulent, juicy 2021 delivers the goods. Dollops of Syrah from Colson Canyon and Mourvèdre from the estate vineyard round out the blend. The 2021 is supremely delicious.

Thea's Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Rich, deep pinot from Willamette. Nice tension. Reminds me of Tensley, for some reason. Probably because of its luscious fruit. Gift wine. — 2 years ago
