93pointsBetz Family 2016 Heart of the Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Mountain)

Cellar Selection

Luxurious aromas of barrel spice, char, roasted coffee bean, black cherry, earth, cocoa, graphite, coffee and herb lead to elegant but textured, layered, tart, lip-smacking fruit flavors. The palate is all pleasantly dialed back considering the warmth of the vintage and region, with an exquisite acidity and tannin balance. In cooler days, Washington Cabernets sat squarely between California and Bordeaux. This throwback wine does just that. Best after 2025. Sean P. Sullivan
