92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$27 list] The 2019 Cuvee le Bec is superb. Ripe red cherry, plum, blood orange, spice and leather all meld together nicely in the glass. This supple, open-knit Syrah-based red delivers the goods, and then some. Drink: 2021-2029. (Oct 2021)"

92 points/'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$27 list] This blend of 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre and 5% Counoise by Steve Beckmen starts with aromas of smashed berry, black tea, purple flowers and light cola spice on the nose. The palate is tense and grippy, with cranberry fruit leather, dried hibiscus and brown-spice flavors aligning. Alcohol 14.8%. (Oct 2021)"

Producer notes: "With a little more Syrah in the blend in the 2019 vintage – 51% Syrah, 38% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise – the wine has a darker profile compared to the 2018 vintage. Black and blue fruits, licorice, violets, and pepper aromas lead the way in this outstanding vintage of Cuvee le Bec. A cooler vintage brings some fantastic structure and acidity, where the blackberry, dark cherry, licorice, pepper, and roasted herbs are complex and long on the palate. A terrific follow-up to the incredible 2018 vintage, the 2019 is in the same class and perhaps even a bit higher in quality. Drinking great now, the 2019 Cuvee le Bec will age beautifully over the next 12-15 years."
