Betz, Cuvée Frangin
Origin: Columbia Valley, Washington State, USA
Blend: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, syrah
(2014 vintage) A great introduction into the quality of the estate, with lots of ripe, sexy black fruits, brambly herbs and chocolate, it’s medium to full - bodied, has good freshness, and shows hints of earth and truffle with time in the glass. It will keep through 2024 easily, although there’s absolutely no need to delay gratification either.
