Texture: Smooth, creamy, silky with a hedonistic finish
Joey Tensley has been making blockbuster wines from Santa Barbara for the past 20 years. He owns some of the top vineyards and sources some of the best fruit in the county, which gives him the ability to craft dynamic wines. Tensley crafts some of the best Syrahs coming out of the United States. This is Tensley’s entry-level wine, and it smokes!. Think of it as the Jack Nicholson of wines: powerful, artistic, crafty, and unapologetically decadent.
What you’ll taste: Spicy blackberries, mulled blueberries, black pepper, candied violets, and bacon fat.
Food pairing: Go to your local butcher and grab the best New York Strip you can find and prepare it Au Poivre with roasted fall vegetables.
