Betz Family Winery Clos de Betz 2013

$102.00 $88.00

In the glass, the 2013 Clos de Betz displays a deep ruby hue, but the real excitement begins with the aromatics: black cherry, damson plum, and cocoa bean lead the charge, while leather, tobacco, sage, and truffle all show up with time in the glass. The palate offers merlot’s weight and density, yet faithfully expresses the freshness and detail of the vintage. This is further enhanced by the highest percentage ever of Petit Verdot in this blend: dried thyme and pencil lead nuances add stunning complexity. This vintage of Clos de Betz is likened to a classic, warmer, Right Bank wine, with both readiness and structure, and notable cellaring capacity. Blend: 63% Merlot, 22% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
