The folks at Buty Winery showcase fruit from three prized vineyards Phinny Hill in the Horse Heaven Hills, Conner Lee Vineyard in the Columbia Basin and their own Rockgarden Estate in The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater for this remarkable and approachable blend of Left Bank Bordeaux with Cotes du Rhone. Indeed, it's made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (28%), Merlot (16%), Malbec (12%) and Cabernet Franc (10%) with Syrah (24%), Mourvedre (7%) and Grenache (3%). While the barrel program is 100% French oak, only 6% of the wood was new, allowing for a theme of Chukar Cherry and dried currant with herbal notes of lavender and sage. Juicy acidity akin to strawberry and boysenberry makes for a bright approach with well managed tannins.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
