2021 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Block Six Syrah

100% Biodynamic certified Syrah (Ballard Canyon AVA)

Block Six was the first section of Purisima Mountain Vineyard to be farmed Biodynamic, a process that started in 2002. Certified like the rest of the vineyard since 2009 by Demeter, Block Six is the highest block on Purisima and is planted in soils with significant deposits of chalky limestone. These conditions contribute to the Block Six being the finest Syrah offering from our vineyards since its inception in 2003. 

Winemaker Description: The milder conditions in the 2021 vintage produced a great Block Six wine that reminds us of the epic 2015 release. Waves of dark fruits, minerals, pepper, chocolate, and vanilla weave their way through the aromas and flavors of the wine. Definitely a vintage with higher acidity and bigger tannins structure, the 21 Block Six retains a round and seamless texture where the rich flavors are supported and lifted by the great structure. A wine that should age very well, we expect the 21 Block Six to age for the next 25 years. Truly a fantastic release of one of our best Syrah wines, the 21 Block Six should not be missed!

January Releases

The 2021 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and 2021 TLB will be billed and released in the beginning of January 2024.

2021 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Los Olivos District AVA)

Our focus on Cabernet Sauvignon from the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Vineyard has been a passion for us since our inception. The first wine ever released by Beckmen was the 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Barbara County so we have been at it for a while. At first, our pursuit was to make a good Cabernet Sauvignon, one that was ripe and lacked the inherent green characters of Santa Barbara County Cabernet. That was long ago. Now, we try to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals any from around the world, showcasing the special qualities that are unique to our fruit.

Winemaker Description: Patience was required during the 2021 harvest as a somewhat large crop took time to ripen in the milder year. This wine was harvested in the second half of October and is a selection of fruit harvested from Block 4 on the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard. Black cherry, black currant, tobacco, earth, vanilla, and herbs abound throughout the aromas and flavors of the wine. The full mouthfeel is accentuated by great acidity that keeps the wine rich and lively yet elegant and round. The tannins are present and make themselves known on the back end of the wine. They provide ample support for the rich fruit and weight of the wine making it seem almost weightless as the wine glides across the palette and finishes long. Another wine that should age for 20+ years, the 2021 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon delivers in a big way!

2021 TLB

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah (Los Olivos District AVA)

The 2021 is the 15th vintage of our beloved TLB. The core of the wine is a field blend of the best Cabernet and Syrah grown on the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard. It combines the best of our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with the juicy mouthfeel of the Syrah. Named for our founder, Thomas Laurence Beckmen, this is a wine he dreamed of making when he started the winery. It is named in his honor and is a tribute to his continuous hard work and dedication to crafting world class wines. 

Winemaker Description: Another stellar vintage of the TLB, this vintage has a massive nose highlighted by blackberry, currant, and plum, with additional notes of dark chocolate, licorice, graphite, and earth. The flavors are rich and juicy, with layered plum, black cherry, currant, and cranberry elements leading to a long finish with leather, cocoa, smoke, and baker’s spice. The wine has amazing balance, great acidity and fine tannins. It is another wine that is amazingly consistent vintage after vintage delivering super high-quality fruit and wine every year. The 2021 TLB should age nicely for the next 20 years and is always one of the most popular wines in the Futures program every year!

March Releases

The 2021 Purisima Red Wine will be billed and released in the beginning of March 2024.

2021 Purisima Red Wine

100% Biodynamic certified Syrah (Ballard Canyon AVA)

Purisima Red Wine is our benchmark wine only produced from our finest vintages. Over the last decade we have made 6 vintages of this wine including this 2021 release. This release is a selection of fruit harvested out of Block Six - our finest block of Syrah on PMV. After recently tasting through a vertical of all the vintages of this wine going back to the original 2001 bottling, the Purisima Red Wine shows it has the stuff to age for a long time, with all the wines showing incredibly well, which was one of the most exciting revelations of the vertical tasting for us. Never a wine to miss out on and only available from our Futures program, make sure to pay special attention to this release.

Winemaker Description: Pure and focused, the 2021 Purisima Red Wine reminds us of a couple of recent, milder years 2017 and 2019. Showing off the wonderful character of the best of Block Six, the blackberry, plum, chocolate, smoke, and earthy minerality shine on the outgoing aromas. The mouth is energetic as the fruit, spice, and mineral flavors dance around the palate, showing vibrant acidity and fine tannins that carry the wine on the elegant finish where the flavors continue to unfold and linger. We love the 2021 vintage for its energy, laser sharp focus, and great ageing potential. The wine should be decanted when young and has the potential ageing 20+ years.

April Release

The 2022 PMV Syrah Clone #1 and 2022 PMV Grenache Libre will be billed and released in the beginning of April 2024.

2022 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah Clone #1

100% Biodynamic certified Syrah (Ballard Canyon AVA)

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, this 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 tailor the winemaking to accentuate what makes this clone special: its old-world aromatic profile.

Winemaker Description: This wine’s consistency in style, flavor and expression from vintage to vintage is phenomenal. Although conditions were very different in the 2022 growing season, this Clone 1 is right in line with the past 20+ vintages we have produced. Smoke, bacon fat, blackberry, chocolate, and game highlight the aromas and flavors of the 2022 Clone 1. As usual, the mouth is round and lush with no hard edges and is balanced by nice acidity and fine tannins. Showcasing the Beckmen style perfectly, the Clone 1 balances ripeness and power with beautiful elegance. The wine will age effortlessly for the next two decades.

2022 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Grenache Libre

100% Biodynamic certified Grenache (Ballard Canyon AVA)

Our evolution with free standing, bush vine Grenache has added another chapter to its story with the addition of Block 1 Grenache on Purisima Mountain Vineyard. Block 1 vines are grown more like a small tree than a bush, as we are pushing and spreading the fruit zone out vertically instead of horizontally. The idea of “Libre” was born years ago - the idea of the vines freely expressing themselves by allowing them to grow as they want to grow and not how we want them to grow. This 100% Grenache wine was created from a stunning crop off the Block 1 and a tiny, exceptional crop from Block 8. Viva “LIBRE”!

Winemaker Description: Outgoing aromas of fresh red fruits, kirsch, licorice, and savory spice are focused and precise. Lifted in the mouth with layers of red fruits and spices, the wine is concentrated and lush with great structure, beautiful acidity, and tannins that carry the flavors on the huge finish. Complex notes of white pepper, kirsch, and savory spice round out the flavors on the back end. The 2022 was harvested in October well after the vicious heat spike of early September under pristine conditions. This wine is the finest of our Grenache offerings from the 2022 vintage and should age beautifully for the next 15-20 years.
