Go Hawks & Go Quarry Butte!

3:06 pm Wine

Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and their Super Bowl win! What an exciting time to be a Seahawks fan/12th Man.

The 2010 vintage — a  double gold winner at Seattle Wine Awards — is  a beautiful blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 12% Syrah, 9% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

At $25, it’s a perfect showcase for ANC’s theme of “Approachable Elegance.”

We have been fans of Quarry Butte since 2007, when we first tasted the 2004 and 2005 vintages.

More recently, we opened a bottle of 2010 Quarry Butte during the Jan. 19 game between the Seahawks and 49ers, and the Hawks won. Being superstitious, it seemed fitting to also open a bottle during the Super Bowl. The Hawks won!

Go HAWKS!

We also heard that the recently released 2011 Quarry Butte is a winner!

Regardless of vintage, Quarry Butte has always been a complex wine with bold flavors. It drinks well with a rich steak or a robust beef stew.

But best of all, it drinks well with a winning Seahawks team!

Go Seahawks!

Go Quarry Butte!

Cheers!
