Buty 2005 Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc (Columbia Valley (WA))

This outstanding Bordeaux blanc-style wine is consistent with recent vintages, which is to say very smooth, round, rich and toasty. Still young, it is showing a lot of pretty new oak toast, and somewhat waxy peach and fig fruit.The Semillon comprises 73% of the blend, within a percentage of the '04, and has been crushed and then fermented and matured in neutral Burgundy barrels. The SB has been tank-fermented. Very tasty, with potential to improve still further over the next couple of years. Paul Gregutt
