2012 Buty Rediviva Of The Stones - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The superstar here is the 2012 Redivivia of the Stones. Coming all from the Rocks region of Walla Walla and a blend of 78% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Mourvedre that saw varying degrees of whole clusters in the fermentation and aging 19 months in neutral oak. It has classic olive, lavender, pepper, dried flowers and sweet cassis notes to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and lengthy feel on the palate. The tannin is noticeable, yet nicely integrated, and there’s terrific purity of fruit. Give it a year or two and enjoy bottled through 2022. - Jeb Dunnuck"
