Brief Description

Tasting Notes

Deep purple with a slight red hue, this delicious wine leads with intense, complex aromas of spicy black fruit, cigar paper, and espresso. On the palate, ripe tannins frame a juicy mid-palate, enhancing elegant flavours of black fruit, anise, and subtle spices.

About

Viticulture:  Located north east of Anderson Valley this steep, historic mountain ranch was once a cherry farm. With its extreme elevation and rare Red Vine soil the Butler Ranch is perfectly suited for the Rhône-style varietals planted there. Bonterra's 90 acres of vineyard were carefully developed from a total of 900 ranch acres, today yielding fruit with extraordinary concentration and flavour.

Winemaking: The blend is predominately Syrah with the addition of Mourvedre, Grenache and Zinfandel for added complexity and interest. Each varietal was individually allowed to ripen to peak maturity before an extended harvest. The blend was aged for 24 months in French oak.

Ideal with...

Full flavoured dishes, especially with red meat such as grilled rib-eye steak or braised ox cheek.
