2013 Ballard Canyon PMV Syrah

Pmv Syrah


94 Points

The 2013 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah stands out again this vintage as a rich expression of Ballard Canyon Syrah. With just a glance at the inky purple hue, one can expect bold and intense flavors from this wine. The nose is full of violets, plums, and boysenberries, which ease into notes of fruit compote, truffle, mocha, and toasted almond on the palate. Enjoy fine tannins and an expansive mouthfeel with each sip of this wine. Drink now through 2025.

Limited quantities available - limit 6 bottles per customer.

SOLD OUT: Try the 2013 PMV Syrah Viognier, 2013 PMV Clone #1 Syrah or 2017 PMV Syrah instead.

    The 2013 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard boasts tremen­dous ten­sion and explo­sive ener­gy. Under­ly­ing veins of tan­nin and acid­i­ty, along with a drop of Viog­nier, give the 2013 much of its fresh­ness. A rush of dark plums, black cher­ries, mocha, vio­lets, cloves and licorice add nuance on the huge fin­ish. This is a fab­u­lous wine from Steve Beckmen.

    A step up over the smok­ing good 2012 ver­sion of this cuvee, the 2013 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain is a clas­sic exam­ple from this estate that gives up tons of black­ber­ries, cas­sis, licorice, roast­ed meats and a kiss of sweet oak. Full-bod­ied, beau­ti­ful­ly pure, fresh and focused, it’s an impec­ca­bly put togeth­er Syrah that will have a decade or more of longevi­ty. The entry-lev­el Purisi­ma Moun­tain Syrah, it comes from the top of Bal­lard Canyon, was com­plete­ly destemmed and spent 16 months in 40% new French oak.

    Rich and lay­ered on the nose, this wine shows pep­per­corn, bacon fat and black­ber­ry jam aro­mas. It is full and soft on the palate, with deeply rich yet still a tad tart boy­sen­ber­ry and elder­ber­ry fruit as well as an asphalt-dri­ven grip.
