2014 Quarry Butte 11.11 Case
Our Estate Destiny Ridge Vineyard was historically called Quarry Butte and was slated to become a rock quarry before we planted on this unique vineyard site. Today, we are honored for the natural beauty and terroir afforded to us by our amazing Estate Vineyard and we are pleased to share it with you. Quarry Butte is an elegantly expressive five varietal blend that packs a punch for its value while capt-uring the unique terroir of Destiny Ridge Vineyard. Dark purple in color, it has an impressive bouquet filled with sultry aromas of marionberry, candied red cherry, fig, and a hint of crushed herb. Rich yet firm in texture the palate is full and bursting with ample amounts of blackberry pie, wild truffle, vanilla bean, and cedar wood spice. The lengthy and distinguished finish is filled with supple yet velvety tannins, which balance effortlessly amongst the harmony of boysenberry, jammy plum, and toasted oak undertones. If pairing with food, don’t hesitate to try braised short ribs, bacon wrapped dates or something simple like wood fired pizza or burgers on the grill. Drinking well now through 2022.
