"The more Grenache-dominated cuvée in the lineup, the 2019 All Blocks Red Wine has a spicy, floral perfume of red and blue fruits, blood orange, ground pepper, and flowery incense. It's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant texture and a great finish.

The 2018s from Tensley are some of the finest wines he’s made. They have the classic, opulent style he’s known for paired with more freshness, purity, and acidity. His wines age beautifully, but my money is on his 2018s evolving even longer. The 2019s are close in style, yet have even fresher, more elegant profiles. These wines will put on weight over the course of their élevage, and this is certainly another brilliant vintage. If you take prices into account, dollar for dollar, these are some of the greatest wines out there." (JD)

Winery Notes:
The All Blocks represents a dream come true for us – a blend made entirely from our own vineyards. This wine is a blend of Syrah and Grenache from our Colson Canyon Vineyard, as well as Syrah and Mourvedre from our Tensley Estate Vineyard. Made up of 85% Grenache, 14% Syrah, and 1% Mourvedre, this blend offers spicy red and black fruit flavors with hints of licorice and earthiness. It is approachable now, but will age well over the next 10 to 12 years.
