2014 Tensley "OGT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

SKU #1378867 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Less sweet and unctuous than the BMT, the 100% Syrah 2014 Syrah OGT comes mostly from Colson Canyon, yet has 25% each from Tierra Alta and Thompson. Inky purple and completely opaque, with incredible levels of blackberry, graphite, crushed herbs and pepper, it's thrillingly concentrated, massive and textured on the palate, and makes the 2013 look almost small in comparison. It should drink brilliantly on release and over the following decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Syrah OGT is terrific in this vintage. Dark, seamless and unctuous on the palate, the 2014 hits all the right notes. Layers of intense, dark-fleshed fruit open up effortlessly. Expressive aromatic top notes add lift in a wine that is rich yet also remarkably nuanced and detailed. There is plenty to admire here. Available only in magnums. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A wine that makes a statement, showing power and deep structure. Aromas of blackberry, espresso and mineral lead to flavors that unfurl slowly, with black raspberry, olive and smoky pepper. The tannins are ripe but muscular. Hands off for now. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
