Notes from the Winemaker:
A blend coming from both of our vineyards Tensley and Colson Canyon. Made up of 80% Grenache,19% Syrah, and 1% Mourvedre. This cool vintage resulting in a silky, feminine, and sweet red berry notes. It is full bodied yet elegant and light. This wine is approachable now but will also age well over the next 8 to 10 years.
This wine is spicy, yet also floral boasting red plum and blueberry notes. It’s full-bodied yet elegantand light on its feet. Drink this wine now or age it up to 7 years.
Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A seductive blend that shows subtle power and refinement, offering vibrant raspberry and kirsch flavors laced with smoky garrigue, espresso and pepper flavors. Ends with fine-grained tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 540 cases made."
93 Points - Vinous:
"The 2021 Red Wine All Blocks, Tensley's Grenache-based wine, is a knock-out. Bright red-toned fruit, blood orange, spice, menthol and cinnamon are all dialed up. This succulent, juicy 2021 delivers the goods. Dollops of Syrah from Colson Canyon and Mourvèdre from the estate vineyard round out the blend. The 2021 is supremely delicious. Drink 2023-2031." -AG (7/230
93 Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate:
The 2021 All Blocks is a blend of 80% Grenache, 19% Syrah and 1% Mourvedre. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it has inviting aromas of cranberries, cherries, tobacco, potpourri and savory spices. The medium-bodied palate is pleasantly chalky and super fresh, with floral fruits and a satisfying, spicy finish. 2022-2027.
93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
The 2021 All Blocks Red Wine checks in as 80% Grenache, 19% Syrah, and a splash of Mourvèdre. Its vivid ruby hue is followed by a gorgeous perfume of red and blue fruits as well as peppery herbs, loamy earth, and iron. With medium-bodied richness, it's a concentrated, textured, incredibly impressive Grenache delivering fine tannins and a great finish.
