“This wine celebrates the 10th release of the Purisima Mountain Vineyard Clone #1 Syrah. On the nose, this wine showcases the classic and pure aromatics of syrah, with robust, dark fruit, violets, and toasted oak aromas. The palate has a juicy acidity, rich with orange peel, coffee, and dark chocolate notes with an intense, fine tannin structure. ”
“This opulent and complex barrel-selected blend represents the ultimate union of our Purisima Mountain Vineyard’s legendary Grenache and Syrah. Deep aromas of blueberry, plum, and blackberry commingle with smoke, mineral, and brown sugar to fill out the elaborate nose. The mouth bursts with grenadine, and an expanse of both plummy-red and blackberries that seamlessly submit to a luxuriant core of chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, and damp fertile earth. Well-structured tannins and an exotic finish of sandalwood make this singular wine hauntingly memorable. The most age-worthy of our Reds, enjoy over the next twenty years.”
“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.”
“Stunning aromas of sandalwood, cherry, grenadine, licorice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and lavender are the first to distinguish this masterfully crafted wine. In the mouth, the palate is drenched in rich, juicy flavors of Bing cherry, grenadine, and cranberry that dissolve into a velvety core of red licorice, herbs-de-Provence, and a toasty tobacco essence. Harvested from Purisima Mountain Vineyard’s goblet-trained vines, this Grenache drinks beautifully young, or will age well for seven to ten years.”
“This exceptional blend of 80% Cab and 20% Syrah proffers captivating aromas of dark cherry, currant, and plum under the sophisticated murmur of black olive, graphite, and damp fertile earth. On the palate, a rich, candid expression of juicy black cherry, currant, and plum slowly uncloak a dense core saturated with dark chocolate, smoke, and spice. The finish is prodigious, with supple tannin and sweet oak that lingers like a long awaited kiss. A wine my father Thomas Lawrence Beckmen has always dreamed of making, it is named in honor of his vision and continued work as a hands-on farmer, guiding our vineyards. This wine will age beautifully for twelve to fifteen years. ”
“The nose of this vibrant wine is as voluptuous as the wine’s deep and vivid color. It leads with enticing aromas of pomegranate, grenadine, and anise before revealing hints of cherry, incense, spice box, and chocolate. This Grenache shows big weight on the palate with a robust dark cherry, grenadine, and boysenberry entry. Its core is dense with black pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg, and has a silky tannin profile. The long spicy finish balances firm minerality with a rich taste of dark chocolate. This wine will show best beginning in a couple of years, and should age well for a decade. If opened in its youth, we recommend decanting.”
