2019 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Grenache

The 2019 PMV Grenache marks the 21st bottling of this wine, and it proudly continues our tradition of crafting world class Grenache from Ballard Canyon. The PMV Grenache has become a foundation wine in the Beckmen wine portfolio. Crafted from the same block of Grenache originally planted in 1998, this wine has helped us demonstrate that Grenache from our vineyard and our appellation is some of the finest and most highly rated in the world. The vineyard block is in its prime as it continues to cultivate wines of complexity and elegance vintage after vintage. The block’s amazing track record of outstanding wines continues with the 2019 release! Produced from 100% certified biodynamic grapes.

Winemaker Description: This release of PMV Grenache is surrounded by a distinct floral quality. Bright and lifted, the complex aromas and flavors of black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, lavender, and forest floor entice the senses. The cool 2019 vintage has kept the wine very fresh with acidity that balances the wine’s ripeness and intensity. The 2019 is a very elegant and potentially long-lived release of PMV Grenache.

2019 Estate Grenache

Crafted from our oldest Grenache block on the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard, the third release of the Estate Grenache is outstanding! A different expression than the PMV bottling, the Estate Grenache is ripe, round, and generous, loaded with depth, texture, and bursting with pure Grenache fruit flavors which highlight the warmth of the Los Olivos District site.

Winemaker Description: Ripe and intense, the 2019 has aromas of caramelized black cherry pie, spice, and violets. The mouth is filled with complex flavors of pomegranate, black raspberry, pepper, and baker’s spice. Full, rich, and round with amazing texture and fine tannins, the 2019 is a fantastic follow up to the awesome 2018 release.

2019 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Clone #1 Syrah

Our selection of Clone #1 was sourced from vines planted in 1868 at Best’s Vineyard in Victoria, Australia. Although we grow eight different clones of Syrah at Purisima Mountain Vineyard, Clone #1 is our flagship single-clone bottling. Simply put, when it comes to Syrah, this clone is a rock star! The grapes for our Clone #1 Syrah are grown on a very steep, limestone-laden hillside, featuring two different rootstocks: 110r and 5c. In the winery, we crafted the winemaking to accentuate what makes this clone so unique: its old-world aromatic profile. Produced from 100% certified biodynamic grapes. 

Winemaker Description: The 2019 vintage is spot on with intense flavors and aromas of meaty plum, blueberry, blackberry, smoke, and mocha. The cooler vintage has brought out more pepper and spice complexity that adds dimension to the ever present gamy, bacon fat qualities that are a trademark of this wine every vintage. Great acidity and fine tannins carry the flavors on a long finish. The 2019 should be a very age worthy Clone 1 release and should drink beautifully for 20 years.

2018 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Block Six Syrah

Block Six was the first section of Purisima Mountain Vineyard to be farmed biodynamically, a process that started in 2002. Block Six has the highest elevation in the vineyard and features soils with significant deposits of chalky limestone. These factors contribute to a wine that has consistently been the finest Syrah offering from our vineyard since its first bottling in 2003. Coming from a fantastic vintage that produced some of our greatest wines ever, the 2018 is the finest Block Six wine we have ever produced. Crafted from 100% certified biodynamic grapes. 

Winemaker Description: Bold, dark and intense, the 2018 Block Six Syrah epitomizes everything a Syrah can be. Blackberry, plum, chocolate, minerals, pepper, and earth explode from the glass showing great depth and intensity. The mouthfeel is broad and expansive highlighted by pure, ripe, and fine tannins that carry this wine over a very long, juicy finish. Amazing balance makes this wine our finest Block Six Syrah to date.

2018 Purisima Red Wine

The 2018 vintage is the 11th release of a Purisima Red Wine, a wine focused on delivering the finest quality from Purisima Mountain Vineyard. Through the years this bottling has drifted from a blend towards being predominantly Syrah. The 2018 vintage is 100% Syrah, created from the finest selections from Block Six and aged an additional 6 months in 100% new French oak. The 2018 Purisima Red Wine is the finest Syrah wine of the year! With only 55 cases produced, it will only available in the Futures Program. Crafted from 100% certified biodynamic grapes. 

Winemaker Description: My one-word description for the 2018 Purisima is stunning! Aged in 100% new Mercurey barrels, this wine has outgoing aromatics of roasted espresso, raspberry, plum, blackberry compote, Asian spices, and pepper that lead to a mouth filled with dark chocolate, mocha, pepper, blackberry, plum, and Purisima Mountain minerality. Full bodied and rich, the 30 months of barrel aging will continue to smooth and lengthen the wine out. This wine has the potential to age for 30+ years and is the finest Syrah produced from 2018!

2018 TLB

The 2018 vintage is the 12th release of our beloved TLB. The core of this wine is a field blend of the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard, harvested at the end of September. Overall, it combines the expressiveness of Cabernet (85%) with the juicy mouthfeel of Syrah (15%). Because this blend is a wine our founder — Thomas Lawrence Beckmen — always wanted to make, it is named in his honor as a tribute to all his hard work and dedication. The 2018 TLB is another amazing wine from the 2018 vintage. This wine is limited and available for purchase only through the Futures Program and the Wine Club release.

Winemaker Description: Powerful and intense yet impeccably balanced, the 2018 TLB is spectacular! The blackberry jam, blueberry jam, lavender, wildflowers, tobacco, and spice aromas and flavors are focused and complex. The texture is big and round with the Syrah adding another layer of roundness to the palette while the fine tannins from the Cabernet Sauvignon keep the wine focused and structured for the long haul. The finish is long and complete where the flavors seem to linger on forever. A truly great wine and arguably the finest TLB we have produced!
