2010 Bryant Family "Bettina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1126191 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Bettina impresses for its tremendous energy, polish and vibrancy. Clean, saline notes support layers of expressive dark red fruit, crushed rocks, smoke, wild flowers and tobacco. A delineated, highly expressive wine, the 2010 emphasizes focus and clarity, but with all of the classic Bryant richness. I especially like the way the 2010 turns dark and explosive on the finish. In 2010, the Bettina is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, all from David Abreu's Madrona Ranch, Thorevilos and Lucia vineyards.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Bettina exhibits abundant notes of graphite, charcoal, blackberries and espresso roast along with fabulous fruit concentration and an unctuously textured, full-bodied mouthfeel with great definition and richness. This superb Bordeaux blend is more broodingly backward than the 2009... (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Jazzy oak delivers mocha, espresso and vanilla bean up front, with the core flavors centered around vibrant currant, wild berry, cedar and cigar box. Gains all the way, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps opening doors of flavor. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby-red color. Darker and more brooding on the nose than the estate bottling, hinting at cassis, bitter chocolate and earth. Then almost surprisingly thick and sweet in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors of black and blue fruits, espresso and black pepper. Finishes with slightly tough (Howell Mountain?) tannins and firm minerality. This has gained in texture and sweetness, without any loss of structure, since I tasted it from barrel a year ago. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2013)

K&L Notes

Bryant Family's "Bettina" is their fantastic Bordeaux blend: 75.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% each Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and 1.5% Petit Verdot, sourced from David Abreu's own vineyards on Howell Mountain and in St Helena.
