2012 Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 was an exceptional beginning for the inaugural vintage of Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend of 3 separate vineyards created a compelling wine which highlights what Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is all about. Dark ruby in the glass, scents of red and dark fruits, cassis, iron, spices and a slight minerality emanate from the glass. The mid palate is rich and pliant while still remaining elegant, allowing waves of fruit and finely framed dusty tannins to co-mingle in harmony. The finish is a mile long and carries the 75% new oak well, allowing the terroir to fully express itself. 2012 was a very rich vintage, so drink now or stash this one away for a year or two as it will age exceptionally. This wine will age nicely for 10-15 years.
2013 Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Becklyn Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

A very refined nose of cool blackberries and dark currants. There is some pretty white flowers weaved into this as well. It is deft and pure and elegant and refined. It shows as textural and near-opulent and is deeply layered. Finish shows a redder/black fruit profile that goes long and true. While the inaugural 2012 brought more richness and opulence up front, the 2013 brings more refinement, purity and class now which tells me this might actually turn out…better and I could not even begin to fathom how that is even possible.

2013 Becklyn Cellars Moulds Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Becklyn Cellars Moulds Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The inaugural vintage of the 2013 Becklyn Cellars Moulds Vineyard Reserve Cabernet is rich and expressive with massive amounts of blue and black fruits. The firm toasty oak and hint of truffle gives this wine spectacular yet subtle depth. The silky tannins blend with the fruit to seamless perfection. The beginning sip starts with rich blackberry currant, vanilla, and espresso.  The wine enters a magical phase on the back of the tongue when you realize a hint of graphite, dark chocolate, leather, and fall spices. This wine is Mike Smith and Steve Moulds at their best.

2013 Becklyn Cellars McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

2013 Becklyn Cellars McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

2013 was a perfect year to make a classically styled yet rich Sauvignon Blanc for Becklyn Cellars. A slightly less than normal crop on our Musque clone block produced a rich and powerful wine. The fruit was fermented in 40% new French oak and 60% Stainless steel which created elegant yet showy wine. Straw in color, aromas of Meyer Lemon, quince, honeysuckle and river rocks combine with waves of fruit and natural acidity. This combination is exactly what we were looking for to create this extraordinary lithe rendition of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Drink slightly chilled in the summer months or cellar it for a year to bring out the extra nuances packed in this wine.

2014 Becklyn Cellars McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

2014 is showing to be another strong vintage and this McGah Sauvignon Blanc is sure to be a go-to Fall wine offering up lemongrass, tangerine, oyster shell and cilantro aromas. It boasts a creamy texture up front that gives in to a saline streak accompanied by grapefruit zest and crushed stone minerality. The lip smacking acidity lingers on and on screaming for a leisurely afternoon on the patio with a Baguette and Brie or some fresh oysters.

Dark fruits, cassis, soft leather and rich black molasses enter the front of the mouth. Next the taste of floral, rich spices, and strawberry tingle as they glance over the mid-palate with just a dash of toasted oak. Finally the finish with smooth silky tannins, notes of cocoa powder, and violets show why this wine has become the cornerstone of Becklyn.
