Winemaker Notes

The nose of this vibrant wine is as voluptuous as the wines deep and vivid color. It leads with enticing aromas of pomegranate, grenadine, and anise before revealing hints of cherry, incense, spice box, and chocolate. This Grenache shows big weight on the palate with a robust dark cherry, grenadine, and boysenberry entry. Its core is dense with black pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg, and has a silky tannin profile. The long spicy finish balances firm minerality with a rich taste of dark chocolate.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A bigger, richer wine, the 2010 Grenache Purisima Mountain Vineyard shows more dark fruit, licorice, baking spices, toast and hints of asphalt as well as a medium to full-bodied, rich and decadent palate. Showing additional freshness with air, it’s a beautiful effort that will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming 3-5 years. Drink now-2018.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Combines richness with density, purity and focus, offering vivid wild berry, raspberry and spicy anise notes that are framed by tight, chewy tannins. Ends with an intriguing rustic edge. Drink now through 2018.

The goal of Beckmen Vineyards is to become the most prominent family owned vineyard estate in Santa Barbara County. Rhone style wines cultivated from Purisima Mountain Vineyard will be their contribution to the next chapter of winegrowing in the Santa Ynez Valley. To appreciate this goal is to be able to understand the history of the Santa Barbara Wine country and the pioneering spirit of Tom Beckmen and his family.

In 1996 Beckmen Estate Vineyards purchased Purisima Mountain Vineyard a 365-acre Estate overlooking the Santa Ynez Valley, where there are ideal soils and climate for Rhone varieties. They began planting in 1997 and have completed a total of 130 acres at this time. The high density plantings are designed to optimize different hillside exposures and elevations.

Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
