Betz The Untold Story Red Wine 2018, Columbia Valley, Washington

Washington is a close community of trailblazing farmers. Audacious men and women pushing the boundaries of winemaking. Windswept mountains, semmingly endless sunshine and some of the most compelling wine on earth. The Untold Story is a wine with a purpose. It challenges us to be bold in the face of adversity and follow our dreams, despite the odds. It’s about making a difference! 2018 vintage: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah, 10% Merlot, 10% Grenache. Aged for 14 months in 100% French oak. The Untold Story is deeply colored, with a dark purple core fading out to a bright magenta rim. The color is reflective of the aromatics: smoky black fruits, blueberries, blackberries, dark plums and cassis swirl about, adding incense and graphite alongside crushed herbs as it gets air. The palate is layered with a plush texture that perfectly balances fresh acidity and fine tannins leading to a lengthy finish that carries a delightful mix of bright rosemary, fresh berries and cracked spice.
