The Columbia Rediviva is the growing centerpiece of Buty. It is a captivating and exotic blend from Washington State comprised of two classic varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah
A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Syrah—this is a focused wine, with complex nuances of licorice, tar, mineral and lead pencil, but it is buttressed by the compact, concentrated red and black fruits. The dusty tannins are reminiscent of a Napa wine, with excellent length and polish.
A 60-40 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, the Buty 2008 Columbia Rediviva Phinny Hill Vineyard features fresh blackberry and cassis tinged with bittersweet nut oils and green herbs on a firm yet finely-tannic palate, leading to a satisfyingly saliva-inducing, abundantly juicy and subtly complex persistence. The longer this was open, the more savory it became and the more in need of "mineral" descriptors to capture its allusive allure. A few more years are likely to bring yet more interest to this Buty beauty.
