Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95 points

The 2010 Bettina exhibits abundant notes of graphite, charcoal, blackberries and espresso roast along with fabulous fruit concentration and an unctuously textured, full-bodied mouthfeel with great definition and richness. This superb Bordeaux blend is more broodingly backward than the 2009, but it demonstrates the potential for at least two decades of longevity.

Wine Spectator: 94 points

Jazzy oak delivers mocha, espresso and vanilla bean up front, with the core flavors centered around vibrant currant, wild berry, cedar and cigar box. Gains all the way, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps opening doors of flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 396 cases made. ?JL

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 93 points

(15.6% alcohol 75.9% cabernet sauvignon, 12.5% each cabernet franc and merlot, and 1.5% petit verdot): Saturated ruby-red color. Darker and more brooding on the nose than the estate bottling, hinting at cassis, bitter chocolate and earth. Then almost surprisingly thick and sweet in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors of black and blue fruits, espresso and black pepper. Finishes with slightly tough (Howell Mountain?) tannins and firm minerality. This has gained in texture and sweetness, without any loss of structure, since I tasted it from barrel a year ago.
