The label on this page is not accurate since this Syrah is not exclusively from the Colson Canyon Vineyard but from 5 different vineyards in Santa Barbara county. Smells like red tart cherries, cantaloupe and fresh gaminess with a hint of spice. This well balanced Syrah had juicy fruitiness of dark cherries and cantaloupe with good notes of tobacco and reminds me of fresh game. Sharp tannins and probably need some time to age to soften them a little. Well made. For more information, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/tensley-syrahs.html

One of the finest values in Syrah is Tensely's 2010 Syrah Santa Barbara (100% Syrah aged in neutral oak barrels). The 500 cases of this amazing offering should disappear quickly given what's in the bottle. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of roasted meats, lavender, cassis, blackberries, charcoal and ink. This ripe, full-bodied, dense wine should drink well for 7-8 years, possibly longer.
