“tenshən” is a play on words that nods to winemakers Joey Tensley and Alex Guarachi’s winemaking acumen and the tension that occurs when harvesting – an abstract energy that a wine possesses, inspired by picking at a just-ripe-enough precipice and then getting out of the way.
tenshən’s thought-provoking Rhône blends are tenacious and alluring. The red exhibits brooding dark fruit that is accented by Santa Barbara spice and completed by a mouthwatering finish. The white has aromas of tangerine and ripe melon, balanced acidity and a finish with a hint of hazelnut. The rosé has a brilliant and vibrant pink color, phenomenal structure and beautiful floral aroma and fresh citrusy flavor with a crisp, clean finish.
