Killer Syrah under $25.00!

As the chief architect of the 3 day wine review approach this wine exceeds the standard of 3 days. I have been buying Tensley Santa Barbara County Syrah for years and this 2020 vintage is outstanding. Here is my review:

  • 2020 Tensley Syrah – USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County (1/18/2022)
    Day 1: Big style but not over the top. Black pepper, blackberries, minerals, red currants, floral and exotic spices. Medium plus finish and drinking well on a pop and pour. 92 points
    Day 2: Fruit is the star on day 2 with blackberries, blueberries and cherry. Also featuring spice, floral, minerals and roasted red peppers. This is a bigger style Syrah but is balanced. 92 points
    Day 3: This is why I do 3 Day Wine Reviews! Totally mellowed out and is better than day 1/2. Blueberries, raspberries, black pepper, spices, floral, exotic spices and minerals. It was never a hot wine on day 1 or 2 but was pretty intense. This needs some cellar time. 93 points
    Recommendation: Half a day decant if consuming now. I would hold these until 2025 and beyond. (93 points)

Purchase this at Thomas Liquors for $22.00 (tax included) if you buy a case of any wines.
