Some more notes on the Betz from publications.

Wine Spectator says:

Brisk and appealing for its zesty style, offering currant and blueberry flavors on a lively frame, finishing with an espresso coffee note. Drink now through 2010. 850 cases made. –HS

They give this wine 89 points.

Wine Advocate says:

While I found the 2003 Clos de Betz to contain worrisome levels of rustic, hard tannin, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Pere de Famille is an impressively powerful, chunky wine. Containing 13% Merlot, 8% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot in the blend, this medium to full-bodied wine is dense, concentrated, and deep. Its blackberry liqueur and tar flavors linger throughout its long, tannin-studded finish. Projected maturity: 2010-2022.

They give this wine 92 points.

I will get my notes up in the next few days.
