Winemaker Notes

There’s something special about the California Central Coast grape-growing region of Monterey and San Luis Obispo, where the stunning beauty and climate extremes can result in a wine like Beckon Pinot Noir. It’s a wine of complexity, lovely aromas and depth of flavors that rivals classic wines of European origins.

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

This is Fetzer’s project in the Central Coast, and the second vintage in a row in which Robert Blue turned out an exceptional pinot from Bien Nacido. It’s an immediate hit of bright red fruit and stemmy peppercorn spice, then it lasts with quiet persistence, lively and substantial in its blood-orange acidity and roseate tannins. Those tannins have a sandy feel, coastal and fresh.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Dried red cherry, wild thyme, sagebrush and an underlying hint of game show on the nose of this bottling from a vineyard first planted more than four decades ago. The palate is herbaceous at first before delivering flavors of roast pork in a mulberry-thyme sauce.

Beckon Winery Video

Beckon wines are crafted to reflect the extraordinary natural forces of the Central Coast, expressed in two of California’s greatest varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Beckon wines come from established vineyards in prime locations. The vineyards are sustainably farmed, ensuring that the wines offer consistent quality from year to year.

Master Winemaker Bob Blue crafts Beckon wines to capture the Central Coast’s natural balance in the bottle. Beckon wines truly are an invitation to taste Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California’s Central Coast, one of the most exciting frontiers of New World winemaking.

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.
