A fabulous value that delivers on all accounts, the inky colored 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 35% new French oak) knocks it out of the park with its ripe, decadent black fruits, barbecue smoke, licorice and smoked meat-laced aromas and flavors. Rich, fat and unctuous on the palate, with plenty of freshness and purity, it tastes like it costs two to three times the price.

The 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is dark, powerful and authoritative, within the mid-weight personality of the vintage. Black cherry, blackberry, graphite, spice and leather are all nicely pushed forward. Delineated and vibrant, the 2014 is pristine today. It should drink well for another handful of years. This is a fairly restrained, vibrant style for Ballard Canyon.

Packaged in the appellation's specially designed bottle, this Syrah from Steve Beckmen's mountaintop vineyard shows smashed blackberry, elderberry, graphite and roast beef aromas. Meaty flavors show strongly on the palate, where herbal touches of thyme and rosemary cling to the firm tannic structure. Vibrant acidity suggests good cellaring potential. Drink 2019–2029.
