2014 Turner Vineyard Syrah (92-94 Vinous; 92-95 Wine Advocate)
Turner remains Tensley’s only cool climate Syrah, and, just as it has in years past, this wine brings a unique flavor profile to our line-up. Turner’s signature is pepper, and this year’s Turner takes it to the next level. Right away the nose impresses with aromas of white and black pepper that last through the mid-palate and on through the long, lingering finish. This wine is bright with mouthwatering notes of raspberry and blueberries balanced by a deep, stone fruit core that features hints of licorice and charcoal. It has a lush texture yet still shows great acidity and aging potential (8 to 10 years). This wine will easily pair with a wide variety of foods from heartier chicken dishes to bold, meaty entrees.
