Because many of you let us know how much you enjoyed last year’s special offering from the BEAST cellar, we decided to open up the library again this year. After tasting through numerous perfectly cellared treasures (we admit it—we love our jobs!), Winemaker Chris Dowsett and I have selected three fantastic wines at the peak of their enjoyment—a red, a white, and a rosé! Featuring two ravishing Buty wines and a devilishly charming BEAST, this library offering has something for everyone. As a Friend of the BEAST, these wines are being offered to you first at exclusive FotB prices from now until March 29th, with complimentary ground shipping on all orders of 12 bottles or more. (Feel free to make a mixed case that includes current releases from our wine store.) Since all wines will be sold on a first-ordered, first-served basis, we encourage you to order soon.

2007 Buty Conner Lee Vineyard Chardonnay - Six-bottle limit
2007 has always been one of my very favorite vintages of Conner Lee Chardonnay, so I have been following the evolution of this wine for years, and I am loving where it is at right now! It is still incredibly poised, fresh and full of life, with vivid fruit, lovely grip and a lush richness that underscores delicious layers of Asian pear, caramel and clover. While it’s amazing now, it still has a lot of life ahead.
Exclusive FotB Price: $39
2007 BEAST Champoux Vineyard Syrah - Six-bottle limit
With its beguiling notes of dried flowers, birch bark, leather and tobacco leaf, this stunner from the legendary Champoux Vineyard has everything for those who prize a little age to their wines. At the same time, this wine possesses an inviting juiciness, with voluptuous dark fruit flavors of blackberry and boysenberry that promise years of enjoyment ahead.
Exclusive FotB Price: $40
2013 Buty Rosé of the Stones, Rockgarden Estate - Three-bottle limit
For those in search of a light, delicate rosé—this is not that wine. However, if you enjoy a richer, more age-worthy Bandol-like rosé that’s defined as much by its gorgeous texture as by its beautiful fruit, then this is the wine for you. With abundant weight and body, it offers a beautiful mid-point between a white wine and a red, while still displaying vivid nectarine and mineral notes, as well as a wonderful earthiness.
Exclusive FotB Price: $24
**Please note that as a natural byproduct of their age, and of our own gentle winemaking techniques, the Buty Chardonnay and Rosé may have some tartrates present (flavorless crystals), while the Syrah may have some sediment.
May spring be filled with sunshine, good friends, and fine wines!
With a wink,
Nina, Chris, and Buty Team
