2011 Tensley "BMT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

SKU #1183983 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In addition to his single vineyard efforts, Tensley produces two special bottlings, both released only in Magnum and named after each of two kids. A blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Grenache (from Colson Canyon and Rodney’s Vineyard), the 2011 BMT is flat-out gorgeous with its brambly, complex bouquet of peppered meat, olive tapenade, underbrush, plum and wild flowers. Full-bodied, mouth-filling and voluptuously textured, it is a thrilling drink and will evolve gracefully for 10-12 years, most likely longer. Drink 2015-2023. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 BMT, a Syrah/Grenache blend, is one of the more reticent wines in this range. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and licorice emerge over time, but ultimately, the wine is quite closed in on itself. Like many of the Tensley wines, the BMT needs another year or two in bottle to fully come together. The Grenache adds an attractive upper register, especially in the aromatics, but the fruit and structure are very much dominated by Syrah. The 2011 is 50% Syrah and 25% Grenache, both from Colson Canyon and 25% Syrah from Rodney's Vineyard. Available only in magnum formats. Inner quote mark (7/2013)
