(2010 Vintage) This signature Beckmen Rhone blend is a fresh and vibrant cuvée with soft, satisfying richness. The nose is suffused with aromas of blackberry, cherry, and smoke, with hints of clove, herbs-de-Provence, and a touch of cured meats. Opulent flavors of grenadine, cherry, and strawberry-rhubarb unfurl in the mouth and usher a lively core of red licorice, lavender, and earth, with great weight and texture. The finish is big with sweet tannins, lingering cherry flavors, and well-balanced acidity. Try this wine with Asian cuisine, or a casual BBQ. Enjoy over the next seven to ten years.
