The aromas of Clos de Betz lead with spices of cardomom and five-spice. Red fruit aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, and raspberry flavors are complimented by cedar and sassafras notes. The integration of tannins has lent this notable finish.

Wine AdvocateMoving to the Bordeaux blends, the 2011 Clos de Betz (67% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) shows the vintage profile with its mid-weight, lively and overall fresh feel. Black currants, spring flowers, mint and hints of lead pencil and cedar flow from the glass and this medium-bodied, lively and balanced red has bright acidity that's balanced by good concentration and depth. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2023.
