Tenshen Wines Red Blend 2014, Central Valley, California 

My Rating 92 Points.   

Price $28.
Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Very fruity on the nose with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, dried figs, alcohol, licorice, light oak, spices, chocolates, peppercorn, dark coffee, tobacco and vinegreate.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Extremely fruity on the palate with sweet cherries, blackberries, figs, raisins, vanilla, wood, smoke, spices, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, graphite, light vegetables and coffee.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a wonderful Rhône blend from Santa Barbara County. Nicely balanced with mild complexity and a nice tangy finish. Has a very nice mouthfeel.
(Might have some RS).

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (90 minutes).
Good by itself or with food, like BBQ Meats.

A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvédre, Petite Sirah & Merlot. Aged for 10 months in Oak barrels. 90 points Wine Enthusiasts.

Delightful and delicious.

15.5% alcohol by volume.
