Large-framed, fruit-forward Syrah. I'm sure this is an "entry-level" wine from Tensley, but it certainly performs far beyond what that suggests. Full-bodied wine highlighted by deep blueberry fruit, classic Syrah roasted meat notes, and oak-fire ash. Round and smooth in the mouth and finish, but still utterly youthful and with a nice future ahead. - HK 2016-06-27
