Tenshen Red Wine, Santa Barbara County, 2014

The message inside the fortune cookie said: Ideas you believe are absurd, ultimately lead to success! And so, the wine partnership between Alex Guarachi & Joey Tensley was born. Together, they pursue the most elusive characteristic of great wines - tension. An abstract energy inspired by picking at just the right point and then getting out of the way. Joey Tinsley - winemaker. tenshenwines.com. 15.5% alc/vol. Produced and bottled by Tenshen Wine, Santa Maria, California.
