Beckmen Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley Estate 2011
External Reviews for Beckmen Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley Estate
Fresh pineapple juice aromatics leap out of the glass, mingling with mango, melon and ripe apple flavors. Smooth, supple and very refreshing. Drink now.
The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc Estate shows the brighter, grassier side of Sauvignon in its crisp, floral aromas and flavors. The estate used a touch of French oak (6%) to give the wine a little more polish. This is a very pretty wine from Beckmen. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2014.
Juicy lime flavors pack plenty of acidity and alcohol into this wine, a tart white to pour with sea bass ceviche.
Pale yellow. Varietally accurate scents of citrus and orchard fruits, herbs and white flowers, with a hint of quinine. Smooth in texture and moderately concentrated, with gently sweet orange and pear flavors and a kiss of mint. Shows slight warmth on the finish, which repeats the minty note.
Rich, ripe honeydew melon, lime peel and fleshy mango and peach flavors are flavorful and focused.
Lean, focused and tangy, with green apple, mineral, lemon-lime and grass flavors that keep unfolding, ending in a vibrant, concentrated finish. Drink now through 2006.
