2008 Tensley "BMT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

SKU #1079937 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Syrah B.M.T. (76% Syrah and 24% Grenache) is a blend of fruit from the Tierra Alta Vineyard (50%), the Turner Vineyard (25%), and Colson Canyon (25%). Given how light the 2008 Grenache Colson Canyon is, I assume most of the finest Grenache fruit went into this B.M.T. blend as it is a killer wine. An opaque purple color is followed by sweet black raspberry, kirsch, lavender, licorice, and chalky/mineral notes. Full-bodied, exuberant, and bigger than life with tremendous purity and a terrific texture as well as finish, this beauty can be consumed over the next 10-15+ years. (RP) 97+ Inner quote mark (8/2010)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A big, ripe style, with zesty, vibrant blackberry, wild berry, exotic spice, loamy earth, tar, anise and floral scents that slowly unfold to reveal more flavor pockets, delving into blueberry and huckleberry. This expressive red is supple, full-bodied, deep and persistent. (JL) Inner quote mark (2/2010)
