The Clos de Betz name is a pun on Clos de B�ze. Bob and now wife Cathy worked a harvest in Clos de B�ze in the early 1970s and Bob told Cathy that, if she “stuck” with him, there would be a Clos de Betz one day. 27 years later, when they made the inaugural vintage of Betz Family’s Right-Bank blend, Bob made a label, saying, “Here you go, I promised.” They both had a good laugh, and Clos de Betz was born. The 2012 has an inky black red core with profound aromatics of black cherry, blackcurrant and plums; its Washington Merlot foundations shining through. A litany of supporting notes of bay leaf, anise, crushed wet stone, flowers and vanilla cream construct a stunning aromatic impression. Merlot�s dominance in the blend takes center stage on the mid-palate, with a deep, textural fullness. A depth and breadth envelop the palate and linger for a long finish. Vibrant black and red fruits abound, while Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot add anise, bay leaf and underbrush to the palate.
