VinousThe estate's 2009 Bettina offers up sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, mint, spices and crushed rocks. The 2009 Bettina stands out for its bright, high-toned aromas and flavors, as well as its intense, saline minerality. Everything about the 2009 is in the right place. This is a flat-out great bottle of wine. In a word: Fabulous. Wow!

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet in color, the 2009 Bettina has a seriously savory nose of tapenade, Black Forest cake, sandalwood, dried Provence herbs and smoked meats with a background of prunes, baked blackcurrants and kirsch plus wafts of forest floor, truffles and garrigue. Full-bodied, super concentrated and laden with black fruit preserves, the palate has lovely freshness and vibrancy lifting all that richness. It finishes with loads of spicy layers coming through. 2019 - 2037
