    March 3, 2012 - Has the thick texture I expect with white Rhones, with ripe apple and melon fruit, good acidity and roundness. Also has some minerality on the finish and a fair amount of sediment, especially for such a young wine. I prefer their non vineyard designated Blanc with the viognier as I feel it adds an extra dimension of complexity and floral notes not found in this wine.

    July 31, 2011 - Please be aware there is another Tensley wine that was merged with this one that is a different wine. The other wine iis 71% grenache blanc, 20% rousanne, and 9% viognier and has no vineyard designation. This wine is 65% GB and 35% rousanne and is designated as Camp 4. I own both and have posted pictures of each respective wine (and separate UPC's) to show they are different. Those of you that bought at Total Wine probably have the non vineyard designated wine, though they just started carrying this wine too. Please do not merge them again as I had to recreate my purchases and TN's on the other wine and delete them here. Thank you.

    February 5, 2011 - Tropical fruit notes on the nose. Nice texture in the mouth. A great wine all around. First time with this producer and I will look for these wines gong forward.

    April 18, 2010 - A bright white; it was fresh with good acid. It had enough structure to match well with a risotto dish. I will definitely purchase again.
    The wine looks Light gold colored.
    The legs are Medium.
    It smells like Peach, Melon, Pineapple, and Light toast.
    It tastes like Melon, Pear, and Orange Blossom.
    The body is Medium.
    The wine is textured Round.
    The wine finishes Long.
