Beckmen Description

Beck­men wines are craft­ed almost exclu­sive­ly from two estate vine­yards in Santa Barbara County: the Thomas and Judith Beck­men Estate Vine­yard in Los Olivos Dis­trict AVA and Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard in Bal­lard Canyon AVA. Tend­ing vines from dor­man­cy through har­vest since 1994, they have dis­cov­ered, row by row, the unique soil and micro­cli­mate that best hosts each type of grape vari­etal ensur­ing every block in the vine­yard con­sis­tent­ly pro­duces the high­est qual­i­ty fruit possible. All grapes are organically farmed and the vineyards are certified biodynamic.

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.
