The first of several retrospectives as we approach Vintage Walla Walla weekend.
Buty Winery is located in the airport region of Walla Walla. Caleb and Nina Foster founded the winery in 2000, and the winery receives is name from Nina’s surname. Rediviva of the Stones is a Syrah-Cabernet blend. The fruit for the 2003 vintages comes from the cobblestone riverbed of Cailloux Vineyard.
Buty Rediviva of the Stones Walla Walla Valley 2003
Tar, violets, and blackberry mark a complex, compelling nose. A gigantic blackberry bomb on the taste. As it opens up, earth and dried cranberry come to the fore. A dense, almost syrupy mouth feel with an expansive mid-palate. An extended finish caps it all off. 78% Syrah; 22% Cabernet. Caillioux Vineyard. 14.1% alcohol. 238 cases produced.
