Winemaker Notes

This is the second year for the Purisima Mountain Vineyard Syrah. The Syrah fruit in 2000 came in with wonderful ripeness from the fairly warm growing season. Prior to harvest we made three fruit drops to limit the yield to 2 tons per acre to ensure optimal ripeness. The Syrah was hand harvested in mid October, completely destemed and gently crushed, followed by a two day cold soak. Fermentation took place in open tops for a period of 10-17 days depending on the lot. The caps were punched down by hand three times daily. Upon completion of alcoholic fermentation the wines were gently pressed and racked to barrel. MLF completed spontaneously in barrel.

For 2000 it was our new French clone 877 that stood out above the rest to take the lead role in this years Purisima Syrah with smaller portions of clone 99, clone 1, and Estrella playing the supporting roles. The wine spent 18 months in 50% new French oak and 50% 1 and 2 year old barrels prior to bottling. This wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Beckmen Vineyards, California
Beckmen Vineyards Winery Image
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.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast California wine district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the Central Coast California wine region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few Central Coast reds and whites. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
