Tensley Santa Barbara Syrah 2017
Once again this vintage of the Santa Barbara County Syrah is made up of fruit from the diverse microclimates that Santa Barbara County has to offer. This year’s SBC blend is comprised primarily of Syrah from the Hilltop Vineyard. Hilltop is a cool climate vineyard and brings a splash of red fruit that is super fresh with a bright acidity. The rest of the blend is made up of Colson Canyon and Clover Creek Sryah. These vineyards both bring lush roundness to the wine along with deep notes of plum, blackberries and smoked meats. Drink this wine now or age over the next seven years.

Wine SpectatorVibrant and layered, with expressive raspberry and blueberry flavors accented by garrigue notes, hints of mineral and smoked cracked pepper accents that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2025.
