Herbal, nice fruit. Not as savory as I would have expected.

This wine has a very primary construction. Black olive tapenade, bacon fat, and black fruits. Short-lived on the palate with an almost carbonic flavor. The nose is far superior than the taste.

This has to be the sweetest Tensley Syrah that I have had. But with 7 years in the bottle it has a rich and deeply integrated quality. Brilliant nose on this.

Great fruit and chocolate, but not at all restrained...a bit too much power. I'd pay 25 bucks and feel good about it for this one...but 50? No way.

On the edge of being over ripe but wonderful with sweet BBQ.
