    March 5, 2020 - This particular bottle was similar to SMHALPS’ recent tasting note. Gooey, sweet fruit and licorice, with a plump core and rounded, plush texture. A chewy mouthful of ripe fruit. Not too much tension and energy compared to a year ago when I last had this wine. Quality fruit, but a lot of it. Really ripe this go around.

    February 8, 2020 - Mike Smith Cabernet Night (Bobby Van's on Park, NYC): What happened since my last bottle in December 2018? The structure is gone. Better as an apertizer or cocktail wine. So disappointed, I thought it would age better. With 75% new oak, I would have thought there would have been some tannic structure. Just gobs of fruit. Although it did improve slightly over a 2 hour period.

    February 3, 2020 - Pulled the cork on a bottle I had extracted a glass from via Coravin one month prior. The bottle tasted just as fresh as it did one month ago. There is always such expansive fruit on these wines, with just the right amount of backbone and structure to keep the fruit from being too much. I view Becklyn as my one "guilty pleasure" in the big, fruit-forward style of Cali cabs.
