Betz Family Winery Besoleil 2009 Washington (92RR) (750ML)
92 WA
"The Betz Rhone-style offerings begin with the 2009 Besoleil, a blend of 66% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault (the latter a first-time addition to this cuvee). It is a multi-regional blend aged for 12 months in one-fill barriques and 300-liter oak. Fragrant aromas of underbrush, cedar, Asian spices, a hint of balsamic, and black cherries titillate the nose. Savory, spicy, and racy, this elegant yet intensely flavored wine can be approached now but should drink well through 2021...92" WA 8/11 "A similar showing to last year's review (although I seem to rate this a point or two higher each time I taste it), the 2009 Betz Family B├ęsoleil is an outstanding blend of 67% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and 9% Cinsault that was aged for 12 months in old barrels. It's still beautifully youthful and tight, showing copious black cherry, kirsch, fennel, roasted Provencal herbs, and meaty qualities, as well as a medium to full-bodied, balanced, elegant, and classically structured mouth feel and finish. Very supple and textured, with more integration and a seamlessness that was lacking a year ago, this impressive blend is no doubt a superb drink now, yet I think it will be even better with another 2-3 years in the cellar...92" Rhone Report 06/12
