Beckmen Syrah Purisima Mountain 2007

A full basket of ripe dark berries and mission fig with notes of woody spices, graphite, coffee, cocoa and earth. Full bodied with big fruit, balanced by a robust savory structure. A velvety mouth feel brings luxury, and the finish is long and satisfying. A very interesting wine: a plus-size, well-proportioned with forward fruit, yet multi-faceted. It’s a complex life, this — and here’s a wine to match. A very good wine. (Reviewed 12/9/12)
