Betz Family Winery Clos de Betz 2015

$102.00

2015 Clos de Betz offers the highest percentage of Merlot for this wine to date, at 75%. More often the final blend contains closer to 65% Merlot, and the higher than normal percentage reflects our success with the variety this vintage. The wine’s color shows the additional Merlot with shades of ruby red and plum. The aromas of 2015 Clos de Betz lead with spices of cardamom and five-spice. Red fruit aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and raspberry flavors are complimented by cedar and sassafras notes. A very long Malolactic fermentation, which lasted into April, endowed our Merlot lots with unusually silky textures. The integration of tannins has lent this notable finish.
