This Week’s Monday Madness
Alex Guarachi originally came to the US on a soccer scholarship. When an injury ended those dreams, he turned to plan B: the wines of his native Chile. After many years of a successful import business, he teamed up with longtime Paul Hobbs winemaker Alex Gonzalez to create Tenshen, dedicated to Rhone grape varieties filtered through California sunshine.
The name Tenshen is a play on words with a nod to the tension of winemaking: picking at the ultimate moment when the grapes are ripe but not TOO ripe. Their wines are informed by Santa Barbara sunshine but they aren’t dominated by it.
Tenshen White is a blend of Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and a touch of Chardonnay. It leads off with flavors of honeydew melon, tangerine, and peach. Notes of honeysuckle and toasted hazelnut follow. % months in neutral oak adds creamy complexity, but there’s plenty of bright acidity on the finish to keep it interesting. It’s everything you want on a crisp autumn evening. And at this price, you might consider stocking up.
Online special available for in-store pickup after 10 AM. Available until Sunday, October 20 or until product runs out.

Connecting Good Friends with Great Wine
The idea that became Pour Richard’s was born of many late nights drinking wine with old friends. At least half of every couple worked in wine sales. Sooner or later, after a couple of great bottles, we’d start talking about how we never got to sell our favorite wines. Many of the best bottles in our respective warehouses never saw the light of day because we were all way too busy fulfilling our quotas on the big national brands. Small family vineyards, fun new regions? Those mostly sat there until we closed them out. “Wouldn’t it be great”, we all said, “if we could sell the things we drink?” So, that’s exactly what we’re doing! At Pour Richard’s, you’ll drink like an industry insider – a well-edited selection of wine, beer, and spirits, all at great values.
