My first bottle of NG Grenache and I would like to reserve judgement until I try another one. I opened and let it breath in the bottle for about an hour.
Deep garnet color, powerful rich raspberry on the nose, heavy raspberry and blueberry flavors on the palate. The wine felt too rich and overpowering for my taste. I tasted again 24 hours later and the wine was flat and without any substance. I don't know if I finally found a wine I don't like or if it was just an odd bottle but I do look forward to trying another one with a better outcome.

I didn’t take notes on opening the bottle but it was delicious and I really enjoyed the fruit and still fresh acidity. I tasted 24 hours later and it was gone.

Dark purple in the glass with scents of ripe plums and blackberries. Lots of dark fruit on the palate with sufficient acidity and a nice spicy finish. Maybe a little rustic but was fantastic with a spicy plate of pasta.

Oak, dark fruit on the nose medium to full bodied with substantial fruit and considerable unresolved tannins. I’m going to wait a few more years before trying another. Overall it was quite enjoyable but I feel this will be very good in the future.

Intense nose of blueberries and blackberries palate is very sweet black fruit. In all my years of drinking Tensley wines this is the first one I didn’t enjoy. Though that first blast of fruit on the nose was enjoyable.
