Professional Wine Reviews for Beckmen Vineyards Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard 2017

Rated 94 by Vinous Media
The 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is positively gorgeous. Ample, expressive and nuanced, the 2017 exudes class. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, menthol, licorice, blood orange, rose petal and mint all grow as this beautifully layered, impeccable Syrah opens up in the glass. The 2017 was done with fully destemmed fruit, and yet it exudes tremendous aromatic intensity. What a beautiful, beautiful wine it is.
Rated 93 by Jeb Dunnuck
Moving to the Syrah releases, the 2017 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard was mostly destemmed (10% stems) and aged 17 months in a mix of stainless steel and oak. Its deep ruby color is followed by a rocking bouquet of blackberries, wild strawberries, olive tapenade, lavender, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, silky, polished, and elegant, it has a terrific mix of freshness and richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It's a terrific value.

Winery Beckmen Vineyards

Region: California

Since the 18th century, California has been a hugely important and influential wine region, acting as a trailblazer for other New World wine regions and utilizing an important blend of traditional and contemporary practices, methods and techniques relating to their wine production. Split into four key areas – the North Coast, the Central Coast, the South Coast and the Central Valley – Californian wineries make the most of their ideal climate and rich variety of terrains in order to produce a fascinating range of wines made with a long list of different fine grape varietals. Today, the state has almost half a million acres under vine, and is one of the world's largest wine exporters, with Californian wines being drunk and enjoyed all across the globe.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.

Appellation: Santa Barbara

When it comes to Californian wines, the region of Santa Barbara is highly respected, and has an ever growing fan-base who adore the big, characterful and flavorful wines the region produces. Santa Barbara benefits from the same west coast sunshine the rest of the state does, and has a fine set of soils which help give the wines some of their distinctive flavours. The majority of Santa Barbara wines are red, with Cabernet Sauvignon being an important grape varietal for the dozens of wineries which call the county their home. However, white wine production is very much on the increase in Santa Barbara, as wine-makers discover how good the blend of sunshine and Pacific wind can be for many classic French white wine grape varietals.
