Complex aromas and flavors of bright red fruits, spices, and a savory note that is not typical of this bottling, the 2020 Grenache excels from this hotter than normal vintage. Plush and round on the palate, with fine tannins that frame the expressive flavors, this wine is drinking beautifully now and will age for at least the next decade or more.
Beckmen Vineyards began after Tom and Judy Beckmen left their innovative electronic music company Roland Corp, US to become pioneers of California wine. With youngest son Steve as Winemaker, and oldest son Jeff joining as Director of Sales later on, Beckmen Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery. Since 1994, Beckmen has established itself as a benchmark Santa Barbara County grower and producer. The dedication to consistent quality - vintage after vintage - keeps them as a forefront favorite of critics, tastemakers and collectors.
Beckmen wines are crafted almost exclusively from two vineyards, the Thomas and Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA and Purisima Mountain Vineyard in Ballard Canyon AVA.
