Betz Family 'Cuvee Frangin'

Availability: In stock

Cuvée Frangin starts with an appealing deep, dark red core and livel, ruby-coloured edge, reflecting its youth and vitality. Smoky dark plums and candied black raspberry dominate the nose, with subtle gravel, dried thyme and soft leather aromas. Cabernet takes over on the palate, delivering a vibrant, polished mouthfeel that demands attention. This structure is softened by plentiful ripe, black cherry and plums, with a hint of toffee and leather. There’s a sense of weight to Cuvée Frangin and it finishes with a lovely smokiness.

Betz Family Winery 'Cuvee Frangin'
More information:

Betz is a family run winery in Woodinville, Washington, headed up by Bob Betz MW. Their first vintage was in 1998, and today they have an annual production of 5,000 cases, of which two thirds goes to their domestic mailing list customers. The vineyards are located in the Columbia Valley, specifically in the Red Mountain, Horse Haven Hills, Yakima Valley and Snipes Mountain AVAs. Betz works very closely with long term growers that allow them to select specific rows and vines. The climate is sunny and dry, with the Cascade Mountain range acting as a cloud barrier, ensuring cloudless skies 300 days of the year. The vines are planted on their own roots, rather than on rootstocks, because phylloxera is not a problem in Washington State.

Betz releases wines twice a year, Rhône inspired wines in the autumn and Bordeaux inspired wines in the spring. Cuvée Frangin is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Syrah. It is aged in 100% French oak (20% new) and is approachable, meant for drinking now.
