2021 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 train them to grow. This 100% Grenache wine was created from a stunning crop off the new Block 1 and a tiny, exceptional crop from Block 8. Viva “LIBRE”!

Winemaker Description: Seductive aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry, kirsch, licorice, spice, and a slight gamey edge are focused and precise. Vibrant in the mouth with flowing layers of red fruits and spices, the wine is concentrated and deep with great structure, beautiful acidity and tannins that carry the flavors on the very long finish. Complex notes of white pepper, kirsch, and framboise round out the flavors on the back end. An extremely cool vintage where our patience for picking late was truly rewarded, the “Libre” should age beautifully over the next 20 years.

2021 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Clone #1 Syrah

100% Biodynamic certified Syrah (Ballard Canyon AVA)

Simply put, when it comes to Syrah, Clone #1 is a rock star! 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. 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 unique: its old-world aromatic profile.

Winemaker Description: Back after a year’s hiatus from our Futures Program, the 2021 Clone #1 Syrah is impressive. A late, very cool vintage produced a vibrant Clone 1 wine. Dark fruits, roasted espresso, game and dark chocolate leap from the glass. The mouth is focused and concentrated with a mid-palette core of dark flavors that reach every inch of your mouth before exploding on the long finish. These luscious flavors are wrapped around great acidity and fine tannins which provide ample structure for the intense flavors. The 2021 has tremendous potential for long term aging, and while showing great now, it should evolve effortlessly over the next 2 decades.

2021 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah OWN

100% Biodynamic certified Syrah (Ballard Canyon AVA)

Our second release of a PMV Syrah OWN is produced from Block 4, a section of 13-16-year-old own rooted Syrah vines. A blend of 3 selections of Syrah 383, Estrella and BB, this vintage is a terrific follow up to the inaugural vintage. The own rooted sections reveal a “pure” Syrah off the Purisima Mountain Vineyard. Showing additional levels of structure and tannin compared to some of our other blocks, these vines exhibit greater drought tolerance which means they have been striving lately. Powerful, structured and age worthy, the PMV Syrah OWN is quickly becoming a favorite of our Syrah program!

Winemaker Description: A fascinating blend of dark fruits and savory, cured meat highlight the aromas of the Syrah OWN. Leaning a bit more on the BB selection, this vintage will become known for its more gamey, meaty profile. The concentrated, full mouth carries that same blend of dark fruit and gaminess along with some electric saline minerality, good acidity and well-structured tannins that frame the wine beautifully. A wine to lay down in your cellar for the next few years, it will age nicely over the next 20+ years.

2020 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. The 2020 is a ripe vintage from a somewhat challenging year where sorting in the vineyard and winery were essential for success. The chalky limestone and clay soils in Block Six helped it weather the torrid conditions and helped produce a very fine vintage of the Block Six Syrah.

Winemaker Description: A ripe vintage, the 2020 Block Six Syrah is loaded with ripe dark fruits and chocolate. Earth, pepper and minerality also come through this vintage. The wine is round, elegant, and intense. Very fine tannins carry the deep flavors through a wonderfully long finish. 2020 is a terrific vintage of Block Six that reminds me of the exceptional 2014 vintage with a touch more acidity. The 2020 Block Six will age gracefully for the next 20 years.

2020 Thomas and Judith Beckmen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Sauvignon (Los Olivos District AVA)

Crafted from the finest barrels of Block 4,2, and 1 on the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard, this vintage of the T and J definitely highlights the warmth of the vintage. Taking things to another level in terms of structure and quality, the 2020 T and J Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is built for the long haul with amazing concentration and balance that will allow it to age gracefully for 30+ years. 2020 was a ripe, hot vintage, but thankfully, these well-established vines survived the heat of September and were able to hang their fruit into October to be harvested in much cooler conditions.

Winemaker Description: Impressive! Ripe and rich, the 2020 T and J is hitting on all cylinders exhibiting great depth of flavor, terrific complexity, and fine balance. Aged in 100% new French Oak, the wine is completely integrated showing ripe cherry, black currant, milk chocolate, blackberry, vanilla and a touch of pencil shavings on the back end. Broad and richly textured, the wine has fine tannins, yet maintains enough acidity to carry the flavors on the very long finish. We do not typically see this weight and texture in our Cabernet wines. Drink now -2040+.

2020 TLB

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

The 2020 is the 14th 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, harvested in the third week of October. It combines the best of our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with the juicy mouthfeel of the Syrah. Named for our founder, Thomas Lawrence 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. The 2020 vintage is fantastic and consistent with the previous several vintages we have produced.

Winemaker Description:A deep, dark, ripe nose of roasted herbs, blackberry, black cherry, plum, dark chocolate and vanilla highlight the 2020 TLB. The mouth is plush, broad, round and ripe with flavors of juicy plum, blackberry, dark cherry, chocolate, and roasted herb. A blockbuster style vintage for the TLB from an extremely warm vintage, the 2020 TLB will evolve over the next 15-18 years.
