    Deep ruby with a dense choco­late nose and vel­vety tex­ture; rich, spicy, and intense with notes of choco­late, vanil­la, plum, and black­ber­ry. This unher­ald­ed pro­duc­er of superb Rh6ne-slyle wines keeps turn­ing out bril­liant bottles.

    Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

    San­ta Bar­bara County’s Bal­lard Canyon AVA is prov­ing to be an excep­tion­al site for Syrah, and this bot­tling from Beck­men capa­bly demon­strates what the excite­ment is all about. It is a big wine by any mea­sure, and it makes no apolo­gies for ripeness, but it is won­der­ful­ly deep in defined Syrah fruit and shows the heady rich­ness and wide rang­ing spice that defines the vari­ety at its best. What is more, it offers extra­or­di­nary val­ue and is a wine that belongs at the top of the shop­ping lists of all who count them­selves as seri­ous fans of the grape.”

    The 2016 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain is a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viog­nier that was aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Deep ruby/pur­ple-col­ored, with attrac­tive notes of black fruits, smoked herbs, bacon fat, and pep­per, it’s medi­um to full-bod­ied, ripe and pol­ished, with tons of fruit as well as under­ly­ing struc­tured and depth. It’s a smok­ing Syrah as well as a great val­ue. Drink 2018 – 2026.”

    The 2016 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is a blend of all the blocks on the prop­er­ty. Pow­er­ful and deep, the 2016 has quite a bit of tan­nic clout behind all the fruit. Today, the 2016 is nat­u­ral­ly very pri­ma­ry, but it should be ter­rif­ic with anoth­er few years in bot­tle. All of the ele­ments are in place for that to hap­pen. Drink 2020 — 2028.”

    Love­ly aro­mas of can­died boy­sen­ber­ry, dark red cher­ry, crushed laven­der, cracked white pep­per and dried sage sticks show on the nose of this bot­tling from a vine­yard locat­ed high above the Bal­lard Canyon appel­la­tion. There is a great fresh­ness on the palate, where fla­vors of laven­der and vio­let meet with pep­pery spice, berry fruit and a tar­ry edge.
