Tasting Panel Review
This Syrah-based wine with Mourvedre, Grenache, and Zinfandel was sourced from a certified Biodynamic vineyard and aged 24 months in French oak. It's liquid elegance, with a base of animale, fennel, and black pepper underneath bright yet savory notes of plum and violets. With balanced acidity and an evolving personality that continues to open up, this Butler is of great service to the palate.
Wine Tasting Notes
Biodynamically grown fruit delivered notable depth of flavor in this vintage. Complex flavors of black currant, plums, black pepper and mushrooms are layered over herbaceous notes of oregano and bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins and a lingering finish. The Butler will continue developing layers of character with an additional five to ten years of cellaring.
77% Syrah, 15% Petite Sirah, 7% Mourvedre, 1% Viognier
