SuNu Pinot Noir - Matteri Vineyard 2018
A firm and powerful wine full of black fruits, rose petal, exotic spices, leather, dried citrus and tobacco. The palate is a blockbuster, alternating between bright fruit and concentrated minerality. The wine shows substantial structure, with the polished tannins indicating serious cellar potential.

About the Winery:
A second label from highly-acclaimed Washington producers, Betz Family Winery. Twenty-two years ago, Betz Family Winery was founded with a basic tenet: search ceaselessly for the highest quality vineyard sites, pay attention to every detail in the vineyard, then give time in the cellar for slow evolution of each parcel’s unique characteristics. The French have a saying for this emphasis on vineyard as the primary engine of wine quality and character, “Sous Nous,” which means “under us.” We believe that the soul of our wine is not in the cellar…it’s under us in the jumbled mixture of soil and vine.
