WOW: "Tenshən" in Holiday Planning?!

WOW: Wine of the Week

"Tenshən" in Holiday Planning?!
Roederer Estate Cristal Brut 2004
If ever there was an appropriate time to have "Tenshən" in one's life - this is the kind of "Tenshən" that is appropriate!

Allow this Tenshən by Joey Tensley and Alex Guarachi to ease the real tension created by the holidays - and ENJOY!
Product Description
"Tensley Wines owner and winemaker Joey Tensley and TGIC founder, vintner and CEO Alex Guarachi announce the launch of tenshen, a new red Rhône varietal blend from Santa Barbara County AVA. Through tenshen, Tensley and Guarachi collaborate to capture the unique Santa Barbara County regional expressions of Rhône varietals, as harvested at the perfect moment of ripening.  Joey Tensley has a strong following for his acclaimed Santa Barbara County boutique wine label, Tensley Wines. Alex Guarachi, a winemaker in his own right with Guarachi Family Wines, has grown his import, marketing and product development company, TGIC, to become the second largest importer of South American wines in the US over $10.  Guarachi and Tensley share a kindred spirit in their passion for wine and love for family, friends and soccer. They have each independently carved a unique path in the lexicon of winemaking. Now, the two notable industry figures join together to pursue that which is most elusive of all wine characteristics: Tension." - Winery Notes

Tensley "Tenshən" 2013 Reviews

"Offers a fresh, lively array of complex flavors, extending from ripe, juicy plum and black cherry to more subtle tar, rose petal and dried herb. Impressive too for its supple texture and length. Syrah, Grenache, Petite Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2023." - 92, Wine Spectactor

Tensley "Tenshən" 2013 Tasting Notes

"Tenshən is a play on words that nods to winemakers Joey Tensley and Alex Guarachi’s winemaking acumen and the tension that occurs when harvesting. Tenshən’s thought provoking Rhône blends are tenacious and alluring. The reds exhibit brooding dark fruit that is accented by Santa Barbara spice and completed by a mouthwatering finish." - Winemaker Notes
