Go home after a memorable tasting at the Beckmen Vineyard with your own bottle of the 2011 Estate Syrah, which received 91 points from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate. Parker further described this wine as, “a pretty, elegant and pure Syrah that has classy black raspberry, crushed flowers, underbrush and salty minerality on the nose. Medium-bodied, concentrated and supple, with sweet tannin, it’s a no-brainer and will drink nicely for 3-5 years.”
