Beckmen Vineyards 2009 Grenache Rose

Top 10 Father's Day Wines 2010

Beckmen Vineyards 2009 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Grenache rose wine, one of our Top 10 Father's Day Wines


Beckmen Vineyards 2009 Grenache Rosé
Santa Ynez Valley, California

Located in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara, Beckmen Vineyards grows blocks of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre for its rosé program. The 2009 Grenache rosé is bright and refreshing, with flavors and aromas of watermelon, cherry and spicy strawberry, followed by creamy berry flavors on a clean and crisp finish. The wine's Grenache core delivers bright fruit, acid and structure; the Syrah contributes color and depth while the Mourvedre adds textural softness and notes of earth and spice. This is a great example of a man-friendly rosé that has just enough masculine character to suit any dad's taste.
