This wine is rich and deep with decadent notes of chocolate, bacon, and black fruits, The mouthfeel is round and velvety with a long, lingering finish. Look for hints of vanilla from the 20 percent new French oak we use on each vintage. Drink this wine now or age it over the next 12 years.

Wine SpectatorDeeply structured yet rich and polished, with smoked meat, huckleberry and garrigue notes that jaunt toward big but refined tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,950 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard, tasted from barrel, offers up sweet, primary aromas of ripe blackberries, bacon fat, smoke and grilled meat. On the palate, it's still early days to make any kind of judgment, but the wine reveals bright acids and lots of chalky structure.

Jeb DunnuckI loved the 2017 Syrah Colson Canyon, a classic Tensley Syrah with its plum and darker fruits, peppery herbs, olive, and savory meatiness. Possessing full bodied richness, impressive purity of fruit, and a big finish, it’s another winner that will keep for 10-15 years.
