2009 Bryant Family "Bettina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1088066 98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 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! (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep 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. (LPB) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This red shares the plush texture and savory herb, spice and lavender notes of the Cabernet, presented in a tight mix of dried currant, mineral, crushed rock and tobacco flavors. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Fresh aromas of redcurrant, violet, minerals, licorice, menthol and forest floor; more floral than the flagship Cabernet. Rich and sweet in the mouth, with terrific blue and black berry intensity. Not quite as suave as the flagship bottling but vibrant and very long; the tannins are chewy and broad but a bit less polished. Still youthfully tight. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (5/2012)
