Joey Tensley launched Tensley Wines with one single goal, to start a well-priced brand that let the unique vineyards of Santa Barbara County speak for themselves. While justly famous for his Syrahs, which have made the Wine Spectator's Top 100 and scored 99 points with Robert Parker, he also does a great job with other varietals.
