Tensley Syrah Santa Barbara County 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage Tensley has done a little something different with the Santa Barbara County blend by bringing the cool climate Mormann Vineyard into the mix. Located in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation, Mormann's mild days and cool nights lend its fruit notes of cedar, black and white pepper and spice. The rest of the fruit comes from the Thompson, Tierra Alta, Colson Canyon and Camp Four vineyards. This wine is drinking very well already but should age nicely over the next 3 to 5 years. 1,740 cases produced.
