Beckmen 2001 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Clone #1 Syrah (Santa Ynez Valley)

Editors' Choice

The best Syrah of the vintage, a magnificent wine that blows you away through the force of its beauty and sheer voluptuousness. Pours dark and thick, and announces itself with muted but distinguished aromas of cassis, cherry pie, truffle, vanilla and smoke. Only in the mouth can you begin to appreciate the fantastic wealth of flavors. All this richness is reined in by dusty, structured but easy tannins and the oak regimen. For all its size, the wine maintains delicacy and femininity. With only 125 cases produced, it's hard to find, but worth the search.
