Sutter Buttes balsamic vinegars are thick and rich, dense in consistency. They need not be reduced to be used as a glaze. This balsamic vinegar starts with Trebbiano grapes, hickory & natural smoke flavors. It has the savory flavors of hickory combined with the sweetness of our aged balsamic. Great used as a BBQ Balsamic and to add savory richness to meats and stews.
