‘Seductive. Margaux-like femininity. Full-bodied. Opulent.’ This is how critics describe BETTINA, 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. Embodying a brooding and tensioned energy, 2016 BETTINA encapsulates the character and essences of the Madrona, Thorevilos and Las Posadas vineyards. Deeply aromatic with notes of blue and black fruits, violets, camphor and crushed rocks, the profile is exquisitely nuanced, persistent and finessed. On the palate, the BETTINA has a fleshiness to seamlessly integrate powerful tannins, which effortlessly and pleasurably manifest into an elongated and smooth finish.
“A striking wine graced with exquisite aromatics and beautifully delineated fruit… woven together beautifully in this fabulous Bordeaux-style blend.”
Antonio Galloni, Vinous
