Beckman Vineyards Santa Ynez Valley Cuvee le Bec 2009 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Smoky blackberry and lavender on the nose

Full bodied on the palate

Rich, layered finish of black cherry, menthol, and chocolate on the finish


An interesting Rhone-style blend, this wine is made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Counoise. It opens nicely with a range of flavors and has good texture. Drink it young, and pour it with rich food or to sip on its own. Expect to pay $17 or so. Raise a glass!
