Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The Bordeaux-styled wines start with the 2006 Clos de Betz, a blend of 61% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It was aged for 16 months in 70% new French oak. Purple/black in color, it reveals a fragrant nose of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, black cherry, blackberry, and plum. This leads to a smooth-textured, intense, layered wine with superb depth and concentration and enough stuffing to evolve for 4-6 years. It will reach its peak by 2012 and remain at that level through 2026.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Ripe and generous, with a gentle layer of tannins wrapped around a glowing core of blackberry, currant and cream flavors that persist impressively into the long, expressive finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2010 through 2016. 925 cases made.

Great wine...primary at first but I followed this through 3 nights. 3rd night was the best by far. Great balance throughout. A little too smokey on day 1 but this faded. On day 3 the saline characteristics were in force along with beautiful fruit. Finish was medium but will likely round out with age.
