2019 Santa Ynez Valley Cuvee Le Bec

Cuvee Le Bec

Wine Enthusiast

92 Points

With a little more Syrah in the blend in the 2019 vintage – 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise – the wine has a darker profile compared to the 2018 vintage. Black and blue fruits, licorice, violets, and pepper aromas lead the way in this outstanding vintage of Cuvee le Bec. A cooler vintage brings some fantastic structure and acidity, where the blackberry, dark cherry, licorice, pepper, and roasted herbs are complex and long on the palate. A terrific follow-up to the incredible 2018 vintage, the 2019 is in the same class and perhaps even a bit higher in quality. Drinking great now, the 2019 Cuvee le Bec will age beautifully over the next 12-15 years.

    This blend of 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourvè­dre and 5% Counoise by Steve Beck­men starts with aro­mas of smashed berry, black tea, pur­ple flow­ers and light cola spice on the nose. The palate is tense and grip­py, with cran­ber­ry fruit leather, dried hibis­cus and brown-spice fla­vors align­ing. Edi­tors’ Choice. — Matt Kettmann

    The 2019 Cuvee le Bec is superb. Ripe red cher­ry, plum, blood orange, spice and leather all meld togeth­er nice­ly in the glass. This sup­ple, open-knit Syrah-based red deliv­ers the goods, and then some.

    Always a good val­ue, the 2019 Cuvee le Bec checks in as 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourvè­dre, and 5% Counoise. It offers lots of up-front dark­er berry fruits as well as pep­pery herbs and earthy, meaty nuances to go with a medi­um-bod­ied, mouth-fill­ing, chewy, sat­is­fy­ing style on the palate. Drink it over the com­ing 4 – 5 years. Matu­ri­ty 2021 – 2026.
