Cuvée Le Bec gets all its fruit from the Rhône Ridge of the Stolpman Vineyard in the Ballard Canyon area of the Santa Ynez Valley. It is unique for its exposures and its complex limestone soil, and produces richly concentrated fruit with tremendous varietal expression.

Ample berry fruit marks this full-bodied red wine, which is dry, with good tannins and soft acids. It's a Châteauneuf wannabe, a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Simple and direct, it will complement grilled meats.

Dark red. Slightly cooked red fruits, cherry cough syrup and gingerbread on the nose. Sweet, lush and thick, with strong fruit and smoky oak flavors. Could use a bit more verve and lift. Finishes with slightly aggressive, cooked flavors.

Mostly grenache and syrah, this Rhone-inspired blend also includes mourvedre and counoise. Itrsquo;s a simple red with black cherry flavors and a hint of sweetness. A little tense and short for now, give it six months in bottle to relax and expand.

The 2009 Cuvee Le Bec is a fabulous wine for the money. Wild cherries, flowers and smoke are some of the notes that jump from the glass in this powerful red. Readers wonrsquo;t find a ton of finesse here, but the wine compensates for that with its superb drinkability. Sweet red fruit and licorice add complexity on the finish in a rustic wine that is ideal for everyday drinking. The Cuvee Le Bec is 45% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre and 7% Counoise. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2014.

I love this wine! Beckmen's 2000 Cuvée Le Bec is loaded with plush and spicy black cherry and cassis flavors, finishing in nice accord with subtle touches of oak and tobacco. I am a big fan of the Rhône-style wines coming out of Santa Barbara County, and Beckmen is not only at the cutting edge of this phenomenon but is also turning out what are certainly some of its best values. With very little acidity and soft tannins, it has been observed that this could be the very finest wine EVER MADE for chili and other similarly spicy foods.
