Tensley Syrah Santa Barbara 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Dark purple almost black at the core with very little variation at the rim. The bouquet opens with raspberry plum and jasmine followed closely by cedar pepper and just a touch of clove. The palate is medium bodied with lovely structure and very round tannins. The acidity is in balance and gives the wine an uplift on the mid palate focusing on flavors of blackberry jam chocolate and sage towards the finish. This is a great wine to enjoy today but promises easily 5 more years. Jeff Loo.
