buty-winery-conner-lee-vineyard-chardonnay-2012-bottleNina Buty began working in Walla Walla with renowned Napa vintner Zelma Long back in 2001, and their relationship with this Radar Hill site near Othello, Wash., stretches back that far, too. Hints of apple butter, ripe pear, Lemonhead candy, vanilla bean and toasted coconut lead into a remarkable greeting of Golden Delicious apple and Bosc pear. Melted butter adds dimension through the midpalate to its lush and balanced finish of baked apple.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 150 cases

Alcohol: 13.4%
