55% Grenache, 23% Mourvedre, 11% Syrah, 11% Cinsault
Columbia Valley, Washington, $49.99
"A blend of 55% Grenache, 23% Mourvèdre, 11% Syrah and 11% Cinsault, the 2016 Bésoleil represents the Betz Family Winery's homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Offering up attractively complex aromas of cherries, kirsch, white pepper, spice, potpourri and licorice, it's medium to full-bodied, sappy and succulent, with velvety structuring tannins and bright acids." William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 237.
