Beckmen 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County, CA
Winery notes: "Enticing aromas of cherry, currant, spice, and licorice are laced with sandalwood and earthy elements, giving the nose of this wine tremendous complexity. In the mouth, robust cherry, cranberry, currant, and a stippling of anise melt into a juicy core of spice and dark chocolate. The finish is long and elaborate with silky, well-balanced tannins and a whisper of cassis. This fruit-forward Cab is best enjoyed in five to seven years."
