2012 Buty Rediviva Of The Stones - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Just 13.1% alcohol; from vines planted on basalt and cobblestones in the Rocks. Good bright, dark red. A sexy note of reduction to the very ripe aromas of raspberry, cranberry, flowers and spices, plus a whiff of flinty oyster shell minerality; conveys strong terroir character. Red fruit and crushed-stone flavors show a subtle salinity, with harmonious acidity and a crunchy note of cranberry energizing the middle palate. Boasts an intriguing combination of elements but quite backward and slow to open. Finishes with ripe, refined tannins and sneaky length. - Stephen Tanzer"
