2010 Buty Rediviva Of The Stones - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"Also exceedingly elegant and finesse driven, the 2010 Rediviva of the Stones is a blend of 65% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Mourvedre that comes mostly from the River Rock Vineyard located in pebbly strewn region around Milton-Freewater, but also includes a small amount of grapes from the estate’s Rockgarden Vineyard as well. The Syrah was fermented all whole cluster while the Cabernet Sauvignon was all de-stemmed. Aged for 14 months in neutral puncheons and barrels, it has a bright, perfumed and downright Cote-Rotie-like profile of red and black fruits, pepper, game and exotic flowers along with a medium-bodied, supple and yet energetic and lively mouthfeel. Opening up in the glass, with racy acidity and a full, rich mid-palate, it is the spitting image of class and while already approachable, it will have at least 7-8 years of longevity. Drink now-2020. - Jeb Dunnuck"
