Following years of drought throughout California, the 2020 vintage brought much-needed winter rains. April marked the first bud break, with a subsequently mild growing season ushering in an early harvest. Reflecting thoughtful farming practices, our biodynamically grown fruit delivered a notable depth of flavor in 2020. 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.

“This single vineyard blend was inspired by France’s Rhone Valley and merged with our Mendocino home. This ranch is seriously breathtaking and we really try to make a wine to do justice to this incredible ranch.”
