Beckmen Vineyards Clone 1 PMV Syrah 2014
Rich and savory, featuring espresso bean, dark chocolate, and smoke aromas followed by concentrated blackberry and roasted meat flavors on the palate. This full bodied Syrah has a refined minerality, chewy tannin structure, and a lasting finish. Drink now through 2027.

Wine AdvocateSlightly less aromatic than the Block 6, which is a touch more high toned, the 2014 Syrah Clone No 1 Purisima Mountain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 45% new French oak) reveals terrific, meaty, savory notes of black fruits, smoked earth, chocolate and caramelized meats. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and nicely structured on the palate, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep through 2025.
