Tensley All Blocks Tensley Vineyards Santa Barbara County Red Blend 2017

$34.99

95 pts                                                               A blockbuster new Red Blend from Joe Tensley, one of the Santa Barbara region's leading Rhone varietal producers. Try this gem before it's gone. 95 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled, the 2017 All Blocks comes from all the vineyards Tensley works with (although it’s mostly Colson Canyon Grenache). This deep ruby/purple-colored effort offers up a terrific bouquet of smoked earth, cured meats, pepper, and both blue and black fruits. It’s voluptuous and sexy on the palate, with full-bodied richness, and is a great vintage for this cuvée." 94 Points Wine Spectator: "This red combines polish and personality, with vibrant black raspberry notes and licorice and mineral-tinged garrigue accents that take on richness and structure toward refined tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2027. 350 cases made."

The 2017 Red Wine All Blocks, Tensley's Grenache-based blend is fabulous. Succulent cherry, red plum, spice and floral notes run through this supple, wonderfully pliant red. The 2017 finishes with wonderful energy and freshness. There is so much to like in this juicy, flat-out delicious wine. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2019)
