2016 Quarry Butte
Our Estate Destiny Ridge Vineyard 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 this amazing location and we are pleased to share it with you. Quarry Butte is an elegantly expressive six varietal blend that captures the unique terroir of Destiny Ridge Vineyard. This red blend showcases opulent aromas of currant, blackberry, cherry, and subtle hints of cedar, tobacco, and mocha. The rich yet balanced palate is concentrated with ample amounts of blackberry, raspberry, vanilla, cocoa, and baking spice. The lengthy finish is complemented by a lush tannin structure, harmonizing effortlessly with the boysenberry, plum, and toasted oak undertones. If pairing with food, don’t hesitate to try with a Manchego Buffalo burger, grilled lamb chops with an herbed chimichurri sauce or your favorite BBQ fare. Drink now and enjoy at room temperature!
