Hello from Marcus at Avalon Wine -
Releases and Small Quantities
For the past couple
years, I’ve looked
forward to early March. Why? Many
spring releases from some of my favorite Washington
producers. Buty is one of them.
Buty red wines—the exceptional,
Rediviva of the Stones and
the refined, elegant 2005 Merlot/Cab
Franc blend—are here!
red blends buck the norm:
the 2004 Rediviva
of the Stones is 72% Syrah and 28%,
from the cobblestones of the famed Cailloux
The 2005 Columbia Valley Merlot/Cabernet
Franc blend is
61% Merlot and 39% Cab Franc,
from the Conner Lee and Champoux Vineyards.
The 2004 Rediviva of the Stones is incredibly
due to the freeze in Walla Walla in early 2004..
Equally as mouth
watering are the Buty white wines:
Conner Lee Vineyard Chardonnay and
Semillon (73%)/Sauvignon Blanc (27%) blend. The
Chardonnay, re-tasted last week, is among the
finest Northwest Chardonnays, with a wonderfully
round texture, voluminous fruit, and perfectly
integrated (and mellow) oak. The Semillon/Sauv
Blanc blend is the ideal match for seafood
or grilled chicken, and is bursting with liveliness.

O-S Winery (Owen Sullivan) Red Table
— Best Deal
Bill Owen makes a steal of a red
from Champoux, Sheridan, and Klipsun Vineyards. It’s
so new, we haven’t even tasted it yet! If
it is as good as the 2004, it won’t last
long. A big, juicy, slurpable red, one to
buy in case lots and make your personal "house
(Just to let you
know: lots of Washington winemakers I’ve
talked to recently
are REALLY excited about
their 2005 wines).
