Beckman Vineyards 2018 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah

100% estate grapes from our biodynamically farmed Purisima Mountain Vineyard. Individual lots were destemmed and hand sorted whole-berry for greater purity of flavor. Grapes were gently crushed and cold-soaked for 2-5 days to extract color and tasteenhancing phenolics. Fermentation took place with native yeast in open tops for a period of 5-10 days, depending on the lot. The caps were punched down by hand three times daily. - Grapes were gently basket-pressed. The wine underwent spontaneous native malolactic fermentation in-barrel to integrate fruit and oak character. Aged in 35% new French oak and 65% once and twice used French. Blackberry and boysenberry fruits, chocolate, pepper, and PMV trademark gaminess.

"There’s a subtle floral streak on the nose of this bottling, with crumpled violet, lavender and lilac aromas, but also tart elderberry and white pepper. Baked boysenberry and more violet shows on the rich sip."

"Leading off the Syrah releases, the 2018 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is a larger production cuvée that was all destemmed and aged 18 months in barrel. Its deep ruby color is followed by a spicy, peppery Syrah with plenty of gamey, bacon fat notes, medium to full body, a rounded, supple texture, and a great finish. Drink this classy, character-filled Syrah over the coming 4-6 years."
