Tensley Fundamental Pinot Noir Central Coast 2019


With almost a cult-like following around the country, demand has driven up the price on some of Joey’s treasures, there’s nothing he makes in my opinion that can top his sensational Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah, (especially not this year with its 3 scores of 96 points or more). Luckily, Tensley remains committed to merging outstanding quality with affordability which is why he launched the Fundamental lineup in 2017.

Don’t confuse Fundamental with a “second label” though. Last month all five Fundamental releases were scored by Parker’s Wine Advocate. Even without the king at the helm, Tensley found himself in familiar territory – all five wines earned 92-point reviews. For releases $20 or less, that kind of praise just doesn’t happen. But I tasted the full lineup a few weeks ago, and nothing that Tensley has earned hasn’t been well deserved. Five very different wines, all qualitatively excellent.

Since it seems like forever since we’ve had a lights out $20 domestic Pinot Noir, I made sure I could lock up everything I could. 20 cases of a special Santa Barbara Pinot are now officially up for grabs. Just $20/bottle today while our inventory lasts… down all the way to $18/btl on case orders. This is a gem.
