"Based mostly on Grenache, with 20% Syrah, the 2015 All Blocks comes from all the blocks in the estate. It has a supple, sexy personality as well as lots of black raspberry, cherry, spice and floral aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness and a great finish. It should drink nicely right on release." (WA)

"The 2015 Tensley Estate All Blocks is a new wine made from Tensley's estate blocks at Colson Canyon and Tensley's home ranch in Los Olivos. Dark, sumptuous and expressive, the 2015 exudes richness and class through and through. The interplay of varieties is compelling. Sweet floral notes from the Grenache are most evident on the finish, but the 2015 is a beauty in every way. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol and licorice infuse the striking finish." (VM)

Winery Notes:
We are very excited to release this very first vintage of our Tensley “All Blocks” Estate blend. It’s long been a dream of ours to own enough vineyard to put together a signature blend like this one. Made up of Syrah and Grenache sourced from Colson Canyon Vineyard, which we recently purchased, as well as Syrah and Mourvedre from the Tensley Estate Vineyard planted at our home, this wine truly represents a dream come true. This wine is floral, rich and full-bodied showing bold notes of black raspberry and cherry. Its finish is long, spicy and elegant. This wine is approachable now but will also age well over the next 8 to 10 years.
