White Wines

1999 San­ta Bar­bara Coun­ty Chardon­nay
Aged Chardon­nay fla­vors of but­ter­scotch and bit­ter hon­ey show won­der­ful­ly in this wine. Drink now – 2025. $30

2003 PMV Marsanne
A gen­er­ous vin­tage of Marsanne, the 2003 is still won­der­ful show­ing how incred­i­ble the grape is with age. Drink now – 2027. $32

2003 Purisi­ma White Wine
A riper, rounder vin­tage, tex­tured, long with bit­ter hon­ey and roast­ed hazel­nuts and dried apri­cot, yum! Drink now – 2023. $45

2016 PMV Grenache Blanc
Stone fruits, cit­rus, with a tex­tured mouth­feel. Drink now. $25

  • 90 points by Cal­i­for­nia Grapevine in March 2018: Medi­um gold­en yel­low; apple and ripe apri­cot aro­ma with trop­i­cal notes and hints of orange blos­som and white pep­per; medi­um-full body; slight­ly vis­cous, cit­russy, apple and stone fruit fla­vors with a plush mouth­feel; lin­ger­ing after­taste. Very high­ly recommended.”

Red Wines

2002 PMV Mourve­dre
Only two vin­tages of PMV Mourve­dre were pro­duced, both are spe­cial with the 2002 show­ing great struc­ture with ful­ly resolved tan­nins and great ele­gance. Ready now – 2030. $58

2002 Cuvee le Bec
An ear­ly favorite vin­tage of CLB, 2002 was a raci­er vin­tage with great acid­i­ty that has allowed it to age grace­ful­ly. Drink now. $25

  • 90 Points by Stephen Tanzer’s Inter­na­tion­al Wine Cel­lar in June/​July 2004: Bright red-ruby. Com­plex lift­ed aro­mas of black cher­ry, black rasp­ber­ry, straw­ber­ry, spices, smoke and gun­flint. Dense, sweet and snap­py, with tangy fla­vors of crushed berries, black cher­ry and pep­per. Har­mo­nious acid­i­ty car­ries the fla­vors through a long, sub­tle, firm­ly tan­nic fin­ish. A very vibrant red blend that remind­ed me of a good Gigondas. And a great value.”
  • 91 Points by San Diego Union-Tri­bune in Sep­tem­ber 2004: This spicy brew of Grenache, Mourvè­dre, Syrah and Counoise is tes­ti­mo­ny to San­ta Bar­bara County’s warm embrace of France’s Rhône Val­ley. Chardon­nay and pinot noir put the area on the map, but there may not be a bet­ter U.S. loca­tion to grow the Rhône grapes.”

2014 Cuvee le Bec
A Syrah heavy vin­tage, dark fruits, spices and licorice, bal­anced. Drink now – 2030. $25

  • 90 points by Wine Advo­cate in July 2016: Lead­ing off the reds and California’s take on a qual­i­ty Cotes du Rhône, the pep­pery, black and blue fruits and flo­ral-scent­ed 2014 Cuvee le Bec is plump, medi­um to full-bod­ied, round­ed and beau­ti­ful­ly tex­tured on the palate. Drink it over the com­ing 2 – 4 years. Note, the blend here is 50% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 8% Mourvè­dre and 7% Counoise, which spent 16 months in neu­tral oak barrels.” 

Syrah Wines

2004 PMV Syrah
Only a few bot­tles remain of this sur­pris­ing vin­tage, ripe with great acid­i­ty. Ready to drink now. $42

  • 92 Points by Wine & Spir­its in Win­ter 2007: Beck­men farms the estate under bio­dy­nam­ic prin­ci­ples, and his farm­ing may account for the res­o­nant min­er­al­i­ty in the wines, whether it’s his nervy marsanne and white Rhône blends like Le Bec Blanc or one of his four syrahs, such as the 2004 from Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard. It was among the most grip­ping Cal­i­for­nia syrahs we tast­ed this year, with aro­mas of cas­sis accent­ed by a hint of smoke and tar; the fla­vors are lift­ed, punc­tu­at­ed by live­ly acids. There’s noth­ing vanil­la about it.”
  • 91 Points by Wine Advo­cate in August 2006: Fla­vor-wise as well as tex­tu­ral­ly, things get more seri­ous and com­pelling with the 2004 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain. This 350-case cuvee exhibits a deep ruby/​purple hue along with seduc­tive, flam­boy­ant aro­mas of smoky black cur­rants, licorice, and pep­per, ter­rif­ic fruit on the attack, won­der­ful opu­lence and puri­ty, and a lus­cious tex­ture. Drink it over the next 5 – 6 years.”

2008 PMV Syrah
Anoth­er incred­i­ble 2008 wine with great acid­i­ty, tex­ture and length. Drink now – 2028. $42

  • 91 Points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2010: The 2008 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Syrah is super. Black­ber­ry, char­coal, and cam­phor notes inter­mixed with some asphalt, earth, and plum jump from the glass of this dense, ruby/pur­ple-col­ored wine. Full-bod­ied, silky tex­tured, and fla­vor­ful, this wine should drink well for 5 – 8 years at minimum.”
  • 91 Points by Wine Spec­ta­tor in Novem­ber 2010: Dense and detailed, with a com­pact band of min­er­al, dried berry, sage and under­brush fla­vors. Full-bod­ied and con­cen­trat­ed, this is slow to unfold, with touch­es of road tar, leather sage and under­brush. There’s nice lift on the fin­ish. Best from 2012 through 2021.”
  • 91 Points by Wine Review Online in August 2011: Beck­men adds a touch of grace and ele­gance to this robust moun­tain Syrah, which keeps it from being over the top. Allur­ing gamey nuances coun­ter­bal­ance its size and weight. Suc­cu­lent, mouth­wa­ter­ing black fruit notes per­sist into the fin­ish. Serve it with grilled herb rubbed leg of lamb now or save it for hearty mid-win­ter fare.”
  • 91 Points by Jame​Suck​ling​.com in Sep­tem­ber 2012: A wine with meaty, spicy and fruity char­ac­ter. Full and vel­vety tex­tured, with ripe fruit yet fresh and live­ly. Deli­cious fin­ish. Why wait?” 
  • 90 Points by Wine Enthu­si­ast in June 2011: On par with the 07 vin­tage, if not quite so cap­ti­vat­ing. It’s a soft, lux­u­ri­ous­ly vel­vety wine, rich in black­ber­ry jam, choco­late, vio­let, smoked meat and san­dal wood fla­vors, gen­er­ous­ly spiced. The offi­cial alco­hol is 14.7%, but it seems high­er and hot­ter than that.”
  • 90 Points by Stephen Tanzer’s Inter­na­tion­al Wine Cel­lar in Decem­ber 2010: Inky pur­ple. Intense­ly ripe, almost liqueur-like aro­mas of pun­gent cher­ry, cas­sis and sweet oak. Lush, very ripe and high-toned, with a pro­nounced sweet­ness to its maraschi­no cher­ry and dark berry com­pote fla­vors. Not the most com­plex wine but this is stuffed with fruit and nice­ly con­cen­trat­ed. Fin­ish­es with sub­stan­tial but sweet tan­nins and lin­ger­ing vanil­la and cas­sis qualities.”

2009 PMV Clone #1 Syrah
Anoth­er youth­ful 2009 wine, this vin­tage was built for long age­ing. Drink 20202040. $62

  • 94 Points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2011: The 2009 Syrah Clone #1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is a huge, dark wine burst­ing with black fruit, smoke, tar and licorice. It shows fab­u­lous inten­si­ty all the way through to the explo­sive, res­o­nant fin­ish, where hints of mocha, tar, men­thol and espres­so add the final lay­ers of com­plex­i­ty. This big wine needs at least a few years in bot­tle to set­tle down, but it is huge­ly promising.”
  • 92 Points by Stephen Tanzer’s Inter­na­tion­al Wine Cel­lar in Novem­ber 2011: Opaque ruby. Pun­gent, exot­ic per­fume of dark berry pre­serves, olive, fresh flow­ers and smoky Indi­an spices. Stains the palate with blue­ber­ry and mul­ber­ry fla­vors, pick­ing up notes of bit­ter choco­late and fruit­cake with aer­a­tion. Juicy and focused on the fin­ish, which shows an allur­ing­ly sweet qual­i­ty and excel­lent persistence.”

2011 PMV Clone #1 Syrah 10th Anniver­sary
A trib­ute to the 2001 vin­tage, the 10th Anniver­sary is a knock­out! Drink now – 2040. $125

  • 93 points by Robert Park­er in August 2014: Sim­i­lar­ly styled, yet with slight­ly more pol­ish and tex­ture than the straight Clone #1 Syrah, the 2011 Syrah Clone #1 10th Anniver­sary offers a for­ward, fine and seam­less feel to go with pret­ty black rasp­ber­ry, crushed flow­ers, vanil­la bean and creamy licorice aro­mas and fla­vors. While I’d enjoy this for­ward, sexy effort over the com­ing 3 – 4 years, it will evolve grace­ful­ly through 2021.”
  • 90 points by Vinous in July 2014: Smoke, grilled herbs, iron and intense dark red/​black toned fruit meld togeth­er in the 2011 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Clone #1 10th Anniver­sary. Pow­er­ful and fer­rous to the core, the Clone #1 has more than enough depth and struc­ture to drink well for at least a hand­ful of years.”

2014 PMV Clone #1 Syrah
A big, ripe, round vin­tage of Clone #1, with choco­late and dark black­ber­ry fruits. Drink now – 2034. $62

  • 94 points by Wine Advo­cate in July 2016: Slight­ly less aro­mat­ic than the Block 6, which is a touch more high toned, the 2014 Syrah Clone No 1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 45% new French oak) reveals ter­rif­ic, meaty, savory notes of black fruits, smoked earth, choco­late and caramelized meats. Rich, full-bod­ied, con­cen­trat­ed and nice­ly struc­tured on the palate, it needs 2 – 3 years of bot­tle age and will keep through 2025.”
  • 93 points by Vinous in Sep­tem­ber 2016: The 2014 Syrah Clone #1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard jumps from the glass. Vibrant and beau­ti­ful­ly poised, with love­ly ener­gy and ten­sion, the 2014 is anoth­er win­ner from Steve Beck­men. Sage, laven­der and men­thol wrap around a core of blue/​blackish fruit. Next to the 2013, the 2014 is a bit more focused and savory in profile.”
  • 90 points by Wine Enthu­si­ast in August 2017: The nose of this bot­tling remains tight long after open­ing, which sug­gests a decent cel­lar poten­tial. A hearty swirl coax­es out thyme, bay leaf, graphite and elder­ber­ry aro­mas before the palate deliv­ers salt and pep­per spice and dark black­ber­ry fruit, wrapped in sol­id tannins.”

2008 PMV Block Six Syrah
2008 rocks! Ear­ly, ripe, great acids, and aging beau­ti­ful­ly. Drink now – 2032. $65

  • 94 Points by Wine & Spir­its in Octo­ber 2012: Block six reach­es the high­est ele­va­tion at Purisi­ma, the sec­tor of vines where Steve Beck­men began his exper­i­ments with bio­dy­nam­ics in 2002. Chalky lime­stone in the soil fur­ther dis­tin­guish­es the Syrah from this block, which Beck­men presents as his top selec­tion. It’s hard not to con­nect that lime­stone with the min­er­al­i­ty of the wine, whether or not such a direct con­nec­tion real­ly exists. All my notes from the blind tast­ing start from rock: The min­er­al scent, the deep earth­en savor of the tan­nin, the refine­ment of the fin­ish on the rocks.’ Those struc­tur­al ele­ments frame sweet black rasp­ber­ry-scent­ed fruit, along with scents of meat, game and an herbal hint of pipe tobac­co. A great vin­tage of Block Six, both tight and juicy enough for roast duck.”
  • 92 Points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2011: The 2008 Syrah Block Six Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is the most mas­sive and opu­lent wine in this line­up, but much of the wine’s rich­ness has been achieved with some loss of vari­etal char­ac­ter, which is a shame. This is still a gor­geous wine, but it could have been tru­ly spe­cial. It is quite clear that the lev­el of the fruit here is first-class.”
  • 91 Points by Stephen Tanzer’s Inter­na­tion­al Wine Cel­lar in Decem­ber 2010: Glass-stain­ing pur­ple. Deep, smoky aro­mas of cas­sis, black­ber­ry and cola, with notes of tobac­co and black tea adding a seri­ous mien. Dense­ly packed and youth­ful, with sweet dark fruit fla­vors and a hint of bit­ter cher­ry pit. A sug­ges­tion of black olive comes up with air and weaves through a long, sap­py, gen­tly tan­nic finish.”

2010 PMV Block Six Syrah
Bold, ripe, with high­er acid has kept the wine fresh and young with bold Block Six Syrah fla­vors and great min­er­al­i­ty and length. Drink now – 2035. $65

  • 94 Points by Wine Advo­cate in August 2013: Fol­low­ing the 2011 ver­sus 2010 trend, the 2010 Syrah Block 6 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is big­ger, rich­er and more tex­tured than the 2011. Show­ing base notes of smoke, choco­late, cof­fee and spring flow­ers, this big Syrah stays remark­ably fresh and focused on the palate and is far from over­done or over the top. Drink­ing nice­ly now, it should con­tin­ue to per­fume well for anoth­er 7 – 8 years. Drink now-2020.”

Cabernet Sauvignon Wines

2000 San­ta Bar­bara Coun­ty Caber­net Sauvi­gnon
A great vin­tage which did not get the acclaim of the epic 2001 vin­tage; wines have aged well due to good acid­i­ty. Drink now – 2025. $30

2015 Estate Caber­net Sauvi­gnon
Anoth­er stel­lar, ele­gant 2015 wine, rat­ed 96 points upon release, still a bit young. Drink from 20202040. $75

  • 96 points by Pure­ly Domes­tic Wine Report in June 2017: The nose is lean, pre­cise vio­let, lift­ed red fruits and fresh herbs. This is flat out gor­geous Caber­net show­ing impec­ca­ble puri­ty in the vel­vet vio­let core with well-inte­grat­ed red and blue fruits. Drink 2017 — 2023.”
  • 93 points by Jeb Dun­nuck in August 2017: The 2015 Caber­net Sauvi­gnon Estate from Beck­men is 100% vari­etal and was brought up in 50% new French oak. Cas­sis, vanil­la bean, hints of mint and bay leaf all emerge from this medi­um to full-bod­ied, rich and con­cen­trat­ed beau­ty that has won­der­ful puri­ty, plen­ty of tan­nin and a great finish.”
  • 91+ points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2017: The 2015 Caber­net Sauvi­gnon Estate gives a very deep pur­ple-black col­or and nose of crème de cas­sis, black­ber­ry pre­serves, choco­late and cig­ar box with wafts of bay leaves and pen­cil lead. Big, full-bod­ied, rich and seduc­tive, it has a firm frame of grainy tan­nins and a kiss of oak on the long fin­ish. Give it two to three years to mar­ry and open and drink it over the next 10 – 12 years+. Drink 2017 — 2024.”

2015 TLB
Ele­gant, silky, and long, a Beck­men favorite vin­tage of TLB. Drink now – 2038. $75

  • 93+ points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2017: A blend of 85% Caber­net Sauvi­gnon and 15% Syrah, the deep gar­net-pur­ple col­ored 2015 TLB Estate Cuvée has a youth­ful nose of crushed black berries, warm blue­ber­ries and men­thol with touch­es of choco­late box and cedar. Medi­um to full-bod­ied and packed with crunchy, pri­ma­ry black and blue fruits, it has a firm frame of chewy tan­nins and a live­ly back­bone deliv­er­ing a long, struc­tured fin­ish. This one could ben­e­fit from one to two more years in bot­tle and should drink well over the next 15 years+.”
  • 93 points by Vinous in Sep­tem­ber 2017: The 2015 TLB Estate Cuvée, Beck­men’s Caber­net Sauvignon/​Syrah blend from vine­yards in Los Olivos, is anoth­er suc­cess. Blue­ber­ry jam, laven­der, spice, tobac­co and men­thol infuse a super-expres­sive wine that is brim­ming with per­son­al­i­ty and class. More­over, with its pun­gent fla­vors and feel, the TLB is a clas­sic Los Olivos wine.”
  • 92 points by Pure­ly Domes­tic Wine Report in June 2017: The nose is green herb, black cur­rant and espres­so. The palate is bright and live­ly on entry with good grip. Pow­er­ful­ly built struc­ture of cur­rant and blackberry.”

Purisima Red Wines

2005 Purisi­ma Red Wine
Big and tight upon release, the wine still shows its youth and will ben­e­fit from addi­tion­al age­ing. Drink 20202035. $125

2007 Purisi­ma Red Wine
Big, struc­tured and pow­er­ful, this wine is a young­ster and would ben­e­fit from a few more years of age­ing. Drink 20202040. $125

  • 95 points by Wine Advo­cate in Sep­tem­ber 2009: The out­ra­geous­ly superb 2007 Purisi­ma also pos­sess­es around 15.5% alco­hol. It reveals more black rasp­ber­ry and black­ber­ry notes inter­twined with hints of graphite, pen ink, crushed rocks, and flow­ers, a full-bod­ied rich­ness, per­fect bal­ance, sweet tan­nin, and good acid­i­ty. This impres­sive­ly-endowed block­buster should evolve for at least 7 – 10 years.”
  • 92 Points by Stephen Tanzer’s Inter­na­tion­al Wine Cel­lar in Decem­ber 2010: Inky ruby. An explo­sive­ly per­fumed bou­quet exudes can­died dark berries, cher­ry-cola, licorice and vio­let, with a suave, smoky over­tone. Lush and creamy on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, offer­ing live­ly black rasp­ber­ry and cher­ry com­pote fla­vors and notes of cola and mocha. Deep enough to sug­gest that it will reward patience but there’s a lot going on here right now. The fin­ish is sweet, spicy and very long.”

2016 Purisi­ma Red Wine
100% Syrah, only 50 cas­es pro­duced, young and expan­sive, will age well for three decades or more. $125
