2012 Tensley "OGT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

SKU #1153321 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Slightly more structured and restrained, the 2012 OGT is another stunning, full-bodied effort that gives up plum, black raspberry, creamy licorice and spring flower aromas and flavor. Finishing with serious length and sweet tannin, it should be a mid- to upper- ninety scoring effort that will make eyes roll back in their heads for upwards of 15 years or more. Drink 2014-2026. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (in magnum) Glass-staining ruby. A heady, exotic perfume brings forth candied black and blue fruits, incense and blood orange. Sappy, deeply concentrated blueberry and cherry-cola flavors show outstanding power and energy, picking up spicecake and floral pastille nuances with air. Shows excellent clarity and thrust on the finish, featuring silky tannins and lingering spiciness. (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Syrah OGT is another of the more overt, forward 2012s in Joey Tensley's range. Orange peel, cranberry, cinnamon, mint and crushed rocks add attractive overtones of exotic brightness in a Syrah loaded with tons of near-term appeal. Bottled only in magnums, the OGT is a blend of 50% Colson Canyon, 25% Thompson and 25% Tierra Alta Syrahs. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

K&L Notes

"One of the rising superstars in California," write Wine Advocate's Jeb Dunnuck, "Joey Tensley continues to focus on single vineyard Syrahs and Rhone blends from Santa Barbara County. All of the wines are treated identically in the cellar and see just under a year in neutral oak (the Colson Canyon sees a small amount of new oak). They show their origin beautifully and have distinctive, unique personalities. In addition, they age beautifully and continue to be offered at fantastic prices. In short, don’t miss these wines."
