Bryant Family Bettina Proprietary Red 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Bettina exhibits abundant notes of graphite, charcoal, blackberries and espresso roast along with fabulous fruit concentration and an unctuously textured, full-bodied mouthfeel with great definition and richness. This superb Bordeaux blend is more broodingly backward than the 2009, but it demonstrates the potential for at least two decades of longevity.
Wine SpectatorJazzy oak delivers mocha, espresso and vanilla bean up front, with the core flavors centered around vibrant currant, wild berry, cedar and cigar box. Gains all the way, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps opening doors of flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 396 cases made.
