2005 Clos de Betz, Bordeaux Blend

This is simply the best Clos de Betz we’ve made. Our fine tuning of vineyard sources and cellar techniques to focus on the core of the blend, Merlot’s richness and density, have yielded expected results. Filled with deep black cherry, roasted chocolate and spice, the flavor is succulent, balanced and long finished. Grapes from our blocks in the Horse Heavens, on Red Mountain and in Yakima Valley in nearly equal proportions.

Acclaim

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate from our tasting in July, 2007, four months after bottling:


“… opaque purple colored with bright aromas of pain grille, spice box, cranberry, clove, cassis, and black currant… a harmonious, layered wine with tons of flavor, well-concealed tannins, and outstanding length.” 92 points
