Bonterra The Butler Mendocino County Red 2020
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
Complex flavors of black currant, plums, black pepper, and mushrooms are layered over herbaceous notes of oregano and bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins and a lingering finish. The Butler will continue developing layers of character with an additional five to ten years of cellaring.
Big, broad aromas of black fruit, black pepper and wood smoke give way to well-saturated black cherries, tar and singed rosemary flavors in this dramatic and concentrated wine made from Biodynamic grapes. Tightly knit tannins add great structure to the mouth-feel, setting the wine up for a long life. Made from 63% Syrah, 18% Petite Sirah, plus Mourvedre, Grenache and Viognier. Best from 2026-2036.
