The Frangine of Betz is an excellent red wine cuvée from the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Syrah (38%), Merlot (12%) and Petit Verdot (6%).
In the glass, this American wine presents itself in a rich ruby red. The bouquet unfolds expressive notes of plums, strawberries and pomegranate. On the palate, the aromas of the nose are complemented by a fresh acidity and velvety tannins. The long-lasting finale is accompanied by a very subtle sweetness.
Vinification of the Frangine by Betz Family Winery
The grapes for this red wine come from the Washington – Columbia Valley region .
The harvested material is immediately taken to the winery and selected. The mash is then fermented in stainless steel tanks. For the velvety character, the wonderful aromas and the strong colour, the ageing in French oak barriques ensures for 12 months.
Food recommendation for the Betz Frangine
