2018 Beckmen Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc....$14.99
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a very pretty wine that offers a striking balance of varietal character, with an extra kick of body that is super-appealing. A blend of sites in Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos and Happy Canyon, along with some musque clone, yields a distinctive and delicious Sauvignon Blanc with plenty of layers to its citrus, floral and sage flavors. Drink through 2023

2017 Beckmen Cabernet Sauvignon....$25.99
Dark, rich, and dense, the 2017 SYV Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with vanilla, spice, cherry, cassis, and black currant flavors and aromas. As is typical with this wine, the mouthfeel is like velvet and the underlying acidity keeps the wine fresh and vibrant. An utterly drinkable vintage of the SYV Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 should drink well for a decade or more.
