After being in Walla Walla last weekend, it was fun to peruse the wine list at Matt’s for wines we missed.
For tonight’s meal, we choose a Syrah-based blend: Buty Winery, Rediviva of the Stones. It was spicy, a bit fruity AND VERY smooth.
This blend of syrah and cabernet sauvignon is grown in the ancestral riverbed of the Walla Walla River. Dominated by syrah, the exact blend with cabernet sauvignon reflects the vintage balance. It is aged entirely in French cooperage with about 30% new oak. Rediviva of the Stones is delicate, sensuous, and of the earth with lovely floral notes. Our cuvée grows as our organic Rockgarden Estate matures.
