About Beckmen Vineyards
When winemaker Steve Beckmen returned from Italy in 1997, he was convinced that his family's recently purchased hillside in Santa Barbara County would be perfect for growing Rhône varietals. His father Tom was skeptical, but since then, Purisima Mountain Vineyard has established itself as one of the finest sources of Syrah and Grenache in the Central Coast.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($48) Opaque purple. Cherry-vanilla, blackberry, Indian spices and violet on the nose. Classic syrah in aromas and flavors, offering sweet dark berry, olive and candied violet notes and a wallop of sexy oak spices. The finish repeats the spicy notes and lingers with very good persistence.
