2019 Beckmen Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Ynez Valley

$29.95 $34.95

Neighboring growers in the Santa Ynez Valley provide fruit to balance the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Thomas & Judith Beckmen Estate Vineyard in Los Olivos District. 18 months in French and American oak brings out vanilla and tobacco notes in the bouquet, joining a fruit profile that leans toward cherry and black currant with a touch of earth for grounding. The long, mild growing season shows in the fresh, ripe fruit and bright acidity.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Ynez Valley) captures all the intensity of Cabernet from this part of Santa Barbara County in a cooler vintage that yielded wines built more on savory intensity rather than volume. Elegant and nuanced, the 2019 delivers the goods. A rush of red/purplish fruit, dried herbs, rose petal and mint builds into the persistent finish.
