Tensley Syrah Santa Barbara 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for the SBC Syrah were sourced from the same five vineyards we used to make the 2010: Camp 4, Mormann, Tierra Alta, Thompson and Colson Canyon. Robert Parker called the 2010 SBC Syrah “one of the finest values in Syrah.” The 2011 was made in exactly same way, and we believe it is equally as good as its predecessor. This wine is ripe and full-bodied with well-integrated acidity and tannins. Look for up-front notes of purple plum, blackberries and black cherries complemented by savory roasted meats and lavender. Drink this wine now or age it over the next three to five years.
