Beckmen 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Barbara County)

Beckmen Vineyards produced superb red wines in 1996-97, this being the third gem our staff has tasted. Here there's a marvelous malty chocolate and cassis nose. It's silky and sizable, with layers of black fruit. What oak it saw has been beautifully absorbed. Simply scrumptious Cabernet from a region not really known for Cabernet. Michael Schachner
