Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Pere de Famille is made up of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 8% Merlot aged for 16 months in 65% new French oak. Doing a fine impersonation of a classified growth Pauillac, it offers up a nose of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, herbal notes, violets, black currants, and blackberry...96" WA 8/11 "The 2009 Betz Family Cabernet Sauvignon Père de Famille is a brilliant, structured wine that has an almost Bordeaux like quality to its aromas, firm tannin, and focused texture . Showing classy and beautifully pure aromas of blackberry liqueur, wild herbs, violets, lead pencil, and cutting mineral and crushed stone nuances on the nose, it is full-bodied and powerful on the palate, with a concentrated, rich mid-palate, fantastic verve to the texture, and substantial, building tannin through the finish. The overall balance and texture keeps this enjoyable now (barely), but it really needs 5-7 years of bottle age, and should have 15 to 20 years of total longevity...96" Rhone Report 06/12
