    March 20, 2020 - Deep purplish ruby red. Rich and dark nose with black berries, blueberries, a hint savory and baking spices. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Lush and voluptuous palate, coated in blueberries, black fruit, baking spices and a touch savory. Long and lingering finish. Drink 2028.

    March 10, 2020 - My first ‘16 Becklyn. This is super smooth and all lovely ripe fruit at the moment. I miss some of the spice and structure that Mike’s Myriad and Quivet cabs show, or the earthy nuance of the Scarlett and 12C cabs. Maybe that will come with time in the cellar, but I’m not sure. This just might be more of a fruit forward, hedonistic offering meant for earlier consumption. My only other Becklyn so far was a bottle of the ‘13, which was disjointed and showed an unusual level of acidity. Not sure what to make of the Becklyn wines just yet, but this is pretty tasty now for what it is.

    January 7, 2020 - Just down right amazing. So much fruit, so smooth, so perfect. Drank next to a Caymus and my wife enjoyed this much more. Should have gotten more. Hope the 2017 is just as good.

    December 25, 2019 - I have been going through these bottles way too fast. But I love this 2016. Drank alongside a 2015 Becklyn BS M-Hopper and this was preferred by half the crowd. That is a strong showing for the regular cab.
