92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2021 All Blocks Red Wine is based largely on Grenache but includes 14% Syrah and 1% Mourvèdre, with the Syrah and Mourvèdre mostly from the Tensley Estate Vineyard in Los Olivos and the Grenache from Colson Canyon. Lots of red and black fruits, iron, herbes de Provence, and savory notes emerge on the nose. and it’s a more structured, full-bodied wine that brings the muscle. (Aug 2022)"
93 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2021 All Blocks is a blend of 80% Grenache, 19% Syrah and 1% Mourvedre. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it has inviting aromas of cranberries, cherries, tobacco, potpourri and savory spices. The medium-bodied palate is pleasantly chalky and super fresh, with floral fruits and a satisfying, spicy finish. Drink: 2022-2027. (Dec 2022)"
90-92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2021 Red Wine All Blocks, Tensley's Grenache-based red, offers an intriguing mix of effusive Grenache fruit and aromatics tempered by the energy and tension of this cool, late-ripening vintage. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, spice and blood orange are front and center. What a gorgeous and promising wine this is. Drink: 2024-2033. (Aug 2022)"
