“This rock star wine is our flagship single-clone bottling. You can drink its hypnotic old-world aromas of roasted coffee, game, blackberry, peppery dark chocolate, and leather right through the nose. In the mouth, a nice soft entry of layer upon layer of dark berry fruit and chocolate unfolds with a rich mouthfeel of silky tannins, black pepper, and smoky oak. Notes of cocoa, scorched earth, more pepper, and anise add to a fantastic finish! This entirely balanced Syrah will age beautifully for ten to twelve years.”
“Crafted from the finest blocks of Cabernet grown at the Winery Estate Vineyard, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is fantastic. Aromas and flavors of high toned fruit, violets, vanilla, and nutmeg explode from the glass. A big texture and great structure keep the wine well balanced and smooth across the palate, with ripe tannins that carry the flavor on and on, through a long finish that lasts for over a minute. Drink this now or lay it down in your cellar, this blockbuster Cabernet will drink beautifully from 2016 - 2036. One of the best Cabernets we have ever produced! ”
“Arguably, this is hands down the finest vintage of Cuvee le Bec we have ever produced. There is a unique energy to this vintage that is captivating. With 50% Syrah in the blend, the 2014 has a darker edge with delicious fruit, earth, and spice that are the hallmarks of this wine. Deftly balanced with phenomenal mouthfeel, this could be the longest lived Cuvee le Bec ever produced. With aging potential up to 15-18 years, this, as always, is an incredible value! ”
“The 2015 vintage of this wine, formerly named the “Estate” Grenache, is fantastic! This 100% Grenache wine expresses aromas of red and blue fruits, with spice and floral complexities. The flavors are lush with deep red fruits and an incredible texture. Great acidity, freshness, and tannins frame the long finish of a great vintage of this wine. ”
“The near impenetrable color of this Syrah hints at its dark intensity. And the promise in its nose, dark chocolate and blackberry with suggestions of molasses-smoked bacon, violet, and earth is only the beginning. In the mouth, meaty plum and more blackberry boldly flood the palate, then soften and reveal a peppery dark chocolate core with hints of minerality and sage. The finish is massive, with big rich tightly-wound tannins complicated by elements of dark plum, kirsch liqueur, and a lingering essence of oak. This wine, an artful synthesis of our twenty-two Syrah blocks, will age beautifully for ten to twelve years.”
“Grenache is a true benchmark variety for Beckmen, and this bottling of PMV Grenache has garnered the winery a lot of attention over the last 15 years. The 2014 release comes from a hot vintage and is similar in style to other hot vintages like 2001, 2004, 2008, and 2013. Co-fermented with the usual 12.5% Syrah, this vintage is all about representing the ripe, vibrant fruit we grow. With expressive, fruit driven aromas and flavors, this wine has a sexy texture that keeps you coming back for more. Full bodied and powerful, yet balanced by great acidity, the 2014 is a knockout vintage of PMV Grenache that will continue to drink well from 2016 - 2031. ”
