2021 Cuvee Le Bec Santa Ynez Valley

From the cooler 2021 vintage, this release is one of the greatest Cuvee le Bec’s we have ever produced. A blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 7% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise. Vibrant, fresh, and outgoing, the wine is filled with aromas of floral tinged, bright red fruits, licorice, pepper, and spice. Lively and balanced in the mouth, the wine’s acidity keeps the flavors bright and lifted on the palate and through the finish where beautiful, ripe tannins carry the flavors on and on. This profound vintage drinks incredibly well now and will age gracefully for the next 12-15+ years.

    This wine always overde­liv­ers, and this vin­tage’s blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 7% Mourvè­dre and 5% Counoise con­tin­ues the tra­di­tion. Aro­mas of baked berry, cin­na­mon, mace and wood on the nose land with live­ly ener­gy on the palate. The brisk plum and cin­na­mon fla­vors are under­cut by clay, dust and fine tan­nins. A very ver­sa­tile wine for the table.

    I always love this cuvée from Beck­men, and the 2021 Cuvee Le Bec shines for its juicy, up-front, deli­cious style. A blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Grenache, and the rest Mourvè­dre and Counoise, it offers lots of plump black­ber­ry fruit, some pep­pery herbs, vio­let nuances, medi­um body, and a juicy, clean, lengthy fin­ish. An out­stand­ing wine, it will stand toe to toe with the finest Côtes du Rhône out there.

    The 2021 Cuvée Le Bec is a very beau­ti­ful entry-lev­el offer­ing from Steve Beck­men. The cool­er style of the year comes through in the wine’s aro­mat­ic pres­ence and lighter per­son­al­i­ty vis-à-vis most years. Dark red cher­ry, plum, wild flow­ers, spice and dried herbs all run through this Syrah-based blend. Drink­ing Win­dow 2023 — 2029.
