Picture this: a candlelit table overlooking the ocean, the sound of Frank Sinatra crooning, crashing waves and a string of lights illuminating your dinner for two…
One sip of this wine and we’re falling in love. While we can’t promise you a happily ever after, we can give you this Santa Barbara County Syrah Lite 2014 from Tensley Wines. First, it’s seductive and dark, full of mystery and intrigue, but as you get to know it and it warms up to you, it leaves a lush, rich, deep fruity flavor on your tongue. Sure, it’s got baggage (you can taste it in the tangy acidity), but it’s nothing you can’t handle. No wine is perfect, but this just might be the perfect wine for you. And if you listen closely you can almost hear the sound of those Santa Barbara waves.
Joey Tensley, the founder of Tensley Wines, first knew he wanted to be a winemaker at 12 years old. He was touring a winery with his soccer team while participating in a tournament in France when he first learned about wine fermentation in barrels. He became fascinated, and from that moment on, he knew wine would be his calling.
