96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The seductive 2012 Proprietary Red Bettina offers up a more Margaux-like femininity compared to the overwhelming power and richness of the Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is a blend sourced from three of David Abreu’s vineyards – Madrona, Thorevilos and Lucia. Notes of Christmas fruitcake, underbrush, blackcurrants, black cherries, licorice and spice box emerge from this complex 2012. At this stage, it is more evolved and aromatically satisfying than the pure blue and black fruits of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Full-bodied and opulent with impeccable balance as well as purity, this wine is already hard to resist because of its surprising complexity and poise. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Graphite, lavender, smoke, plums and violets meld together in the 2012 Bettina, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend made from David Abreu fruit. The flavors are brighter, more focused and more vibrant than in the Cabernet Sauvignon, with gorgeous beams of supporting tannin that convey energy through the finish. Dark red stone fruits, pencil shavings, cloves, leather and smoke add the final layers of complexity. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows wonderful focus and purity of flavor, extending from initial hints of dusty, loamy earth to cedary oak accents and a taut core of dusty dark berry and savory notes. Impressively graceful and textured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2029. 900 cases made. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (8/2015)
