94 Points

Our first Syrah release for the 2016 vintage, the 2016 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Clone #1 Syrah is drinking beautifully upon release. Classic Clone #1 aromas and flavors of smoke, espresso roast, game, and blackberry fruits are abundant in this vintage. The wine is full, rich, and round with great texture, balanced acidity, and a long finish. Once again a terrific vintage of Clone #1 Syrah! Drink 2018 – 2030.

    The 2016 Syrah Clone #1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard emerges from two blocks on the prop­er­ty. Tast­ed next to the oth­er wines in the range, the Block #1 is dis­tin­guished by its ampli­tude and vol­ume. Blue/​purplish stone fruits, licorice, spice, leather and men­thol all fill out the wine’s frame effort­less­ly. The Clone #1 is a big wine, but its bal­ance is impec­ca­ble. Here, too, the 60% new oak is well judged. Drink 2020 — 2028.”

    Even deep­er col­ored, the 2016 Syrah Clone #1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain is 100% Syrah aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. It offers more smoky, meaty, bar­be­cue aro­mas and fla­vors, full body, bright acid­i­ty, and slight­ly more struc­ture and depth. It needs 2 – 3 years of bot­tle age to real­ly come togeth­er but should see its 15th birth­day in fine form. Drink 2018 – 2021.”

    Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

    If any­thing, a big­ger and more pow­er­ful wine than its cel­lar­mate list­ed just above, this is the sec­ond of two very impres­sive Syrahs from Beck­men in 2016. It is a big, full-bore expres­sion of the grape that, like its com­pan­ion, makes no bones about being very ripe, but, even as it fin­ish­es with a catch of last-minute heat, it is immense, black­ber­ry fruit and unre­lent­ing spice that are its endur­ing mes­sage. It will cer­tain­ly nev­er be accused of timid­i­ty and will like­ly be crit­i­cized in some quar­ters as being over the top, but for all its con­sid­er­able size and rich­ness, it is a solid­ly struc­tured, unas­sail­ably vari­etal ren­di­tion that promis­es to age famously.”
