2011 Betz Family Clos de Betz - 90 -92 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 92 Pts"Looking at the Bordeaux-styled releases from barrel, the 2011 Clos de Betz is the estate's take on a right bank Bordeaux and will be a blend of roughly 63% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. Lacking the weight of the 2010, it is a softly textured, elegant effort that has notions of flowers, black fruit, pepper and incense to go with a medium to full-bodied, balanced mouthfeel. Already reasonably approachable, it will be interesting to see how this shows from bottle; if it puts on weight, the score and drink window will be conservative. - JD"
