Beckmen had the honor to be served in a state dinner at the White House.
“Crafted with Grenache from both Purisima Mountain Vineyard and the Estate Vineyard, this wine has bright aromas of pomegranate, cherry, and vanilla. These aromatics are carried through to the palate, where notes of cranberry and bakers spice add layers of opulent complexity. A creamy texture on the front develops into a heavier, long lasting finish with silky smooth tannins. This wine will drink beautifully from 2015 - 2024.”
“This signature Beckmen Rhone blend is a fresh and vibrant cuvée with soft, satisfying richness. The nose is suffused with aromas of blackberry, cherry, and smoke, with hints of clove, herbs-de-Provence, and a touch of cured meats. Opulent flavors of grenadine, cherry, and strawberry-rhubarb unfurl in the mouth and usher a lively core of red licorice, lavender, and earth, with great weight and texture. The finish is big with sweet tannins, lingering cherry flavors, and well-balanced acidity. Try this wine with Asian cuisine, or a casual BBQ. Enjoy over the next seven to ten 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.”
“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. ”
“The finest Syrah in our portfolio, this wine is made from stressed vines that produce very small berries, grown on the top of Purisima Mountain in a limestone rich soil. Complex aromas of sandalwood, plum, blackberry, and smoke become even more concentrated on the palate, with notes of mocha, currants, and black pepper. This vintage has a noticeably fine tannin structure, creating a silky mouthfeel. The wine was bottled without a foil cap, as a part of our continuing efforts to be more environmentally friendly. This wine tastes incredible now, and will age beautifully until 2030.”
“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.”
