BETTINA is Bryant Estate's beautifully layered and complex blend of four Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Sourced from David Abreu's exceptional estate vineyards - Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas-the differing elevations and soil compositions give BETTINA wonderful structure and dimensionality. This blend has evolved into an irresistibly hedonistic powerhouse.

The estate's 2009 Bettina offers up sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, mint, spices and crushed rocks. The 2009 Bettina stands out for its bright, high-toned aromas and flavors, as well as its intense, saline minerality. Everything about the 2009 is in the right place. This is a flat-out great bottle of wine. In a word: Fabulous. Wow!

Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Bettina has a seriously savory nose of tapenade, Black Forest cake, sandalwood, dried Provence herbs and smoked meats with a background of prunes, baked blackcurrants and kirsch plus wafts of forest floor, truffles and garrigue. Full-bodied, super concentrated and laden with black fruit preserves, the palate has lovely freshness and vibrancy lifting all that richness. It finishes with loads of spicy layers coming through.

This red shares the plush texture and savory herb, spice and lavender notes of the Cabernet, presented in a tight mix of dried currant, mineral, crushed rock and tobacco flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2026. 800 cases made.
