    Winemaker's Notes:

    Joey Tensley, one of Santa Barbara's budding superstars, produces a sensational portfolio of wines, save for his only weak spot – Grenache. The Syrahs continue to go from strength to strength, and some are realistically priced for the high quality.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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. Rating 97+.

    The Wine Advocate

    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.
