Tensley Syrah Colson Canyon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Approximately half of our wine production is made up of fruit from the meticulously farmed vineyard high in the mountains of Tepesquet Canyon. Colson Canyon is the only one of our wines to see any new oak. It is aged in 20% new, 20% one-year-old, and 60% neutral French oak barrels to add a bit of sweet vanilla and coffee to the finish. The 2010 growing season was long and cool allowing the grapes to develop wonderful complexity and concentration. The 2010 Colson once again delivers its signature flavors of graphite, blackcurrant, raspberries and bacon complemented by a solid tannic structure and balanced acidity. Drink this wine now or age it for up to 15 years.
