Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

"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.
Cellar Selection"
94 Points

"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."
