    February 6, 2022 - Still dark in the glass with a small but well-defined meniscus. Sweet red fruit and some menthol on the nose. Very smooth and elegant on the palate, and then the red fruit jumps out - bright cherry mostly, good and tart. Some pleasant tannins appear on the finish. Was delish with rack of lamb - yum.

    May 22, 2021 - Decanted for 2 hours, some leather, spome lingering fruit, integrated tannins. This wine is not getting better with time at this point. Put it with a big porterhouse and go for it no later than this autumn

    May 22, 2021 - Corked. I think? Zero fruit after a 2-hour decant and had a faint musty smell out of the decanter. Not undrinkable but definitely off. Could be heat damage but no baked/roasted fruit flavors.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    3/8/2009 (link) ***** points

    (Betz Family Winery Pere de Famille Columbia Valley) Dark and inky in color. An endlessly fascinating nose that jumps at you on pour with herbs, roasted meats, dark fruit, and Panda Bear licorice. Rich and plush with grippy tannins and texture. A perfect mix of power and elegance. Give at least 2 years. 84% Cabernet, 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. 79% Red Mountain, 10.5% Horse Heaven Hills, 10.5% Yakima Valley. Sampled at 60 degrees.
