    Winemaker Notes

    The cool vintage has produced a wine with amazing color and depth, as well as beautiful varietal character and pure fruit notes. Alluring cherry and cream aromas hint at this wine's lush, juicy mouthfeel, where lovely cabernet layers of black cherry, cassis and spice are underscored by the density and richness of the syrah. Hints of wildflowers, licorice, char and spicy mint add nuance, while firm, well-balanced tannins and excellent natural acidity provide an almost architectural backbone, and the promise of long life.

    Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah

    Buty, Washington
    Our wines aren’t 90% vineyard and 10% winemaking. They are 100% winemaking, 100% vineyard, 100% terroir. We don’t obscure any developmental stages, we include their contributions. We are not “hands off in the cellar". No way! We are completely hands on in our winemaking, knowing we are metamorphosing the sum total of our wines.

    Your enjoyment of our wines involves all these efforts, making wine perhaps the most hands on food of all. The spirit of Buty wines inclusively nests all the contributions of our vineyards and winemaking and service.

    Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

    The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

    It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

    Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
