Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and their NFC Championship win – wow, what a nail biter.
And three cheers to Quarry Butte from Alexandria Nicole Cellars, which was our drink of choice during the Hawks’ playoff games to the Super Bowl in 2014, and through their run to the Super Bowl this season.
During Sunday’s intense game against the Packers, we opened two bottles, counting on our lucky Quarry Butte to keep us cheering while the dogs, wearing their Seahawks bandanas, barked at the TV!
What a comeback! Seattle, Washington state and the 12th Man everywhere went crazy! So did our #12thDogs!
Up next the Super Bowl – Go Hawks! We will continue our superstitious tradition of drinking Quarry Butte throughout the big game!
We have been fans of Quarry Butte since 2007, when we first tasted the 2004 and 2005 vintages. And the current 2011 vintage pairs well with Hawks wins, just like the 2010 vintage did last year.
Here’s hoping for another Super Bowl win!
Here is the post we wrote after last year’s big win:
Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and their Super Bowl win! What an exciting time to be a Seahawks fan/12th Man.
What was in our glasses during the game? Quarry Butte from Alexandria Nicole Cellars!
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.”

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!
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 Quarry Butte!
