2018 Quarry Butte - Alexandria Nicole Cellars
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. The 2018 Quarry Butte features an elegantly expressive five varietal blend capturing the unique terroir of Destiny Ridge Vineyard. This red blend showcases decadent aromas of crème de cassis, raspberry, and blackberry, followed by subtle hints of cedar, tobacco, and espresso. Richly layered, yet balanced, the palate is met with ripe raspberry, blackberry, cherry, and baking spice. 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. The 2018 vintage provided wines of structure that are sure to be age-worthy, decant, and enjoy!
