2014 Cinsaut Counoise

“When Randall Grahm starts tinkering with blends, the likelihood of something worthy coming out of the proceedings is high, and this time a clear experiment makes it to market in this bottle, that's not just a blend of less familiar grapes, but from vineyards in Paso Robles, Mendocino and Lodi.  It's quite interesting and elegant, with rich forest floor and soft red fruit that's more strawberry than cherry -- it's long and complex in a different but very pleasant way. A blind tasting bonanza wine!"

2011 Le Cigare Volant normale

93 POINTS, Wine Enthusiast: “Offers intriguing asphalt, black pepper, boysenberry and a tiny bit of barnyard funk on the nose.  It's dark and brooding, with flavors of black pepper, leather and black fruits on the palate, but rather light and lean in texture, with a solid amount of tannic grip." - MK, December 2015

2014 Clos de Gilroy

Grenache is really the star of the show, and exhibits all the hallmarks of exceptional coolth—bright raspberries, red fruit, a strong suggestion of black pepper and mint, a whiff of dark earth, and a supple, lingering finish.

2011 Syrah, Bien Nacido Vineyard, “X-Block

Randall Grahm notes that this is one of his best Syrahs from this historic vineyard, and it's hard to disagree.  Aromas of gravel, just-crushed peppercorns, and blueberries lead into a lighter, airy, mineral-driven palate of black rocks, black pepper and boysenberry fruit.  It's one of the better cool-climate Syrah around right now." Editor's Choice. -MK, December 2015

2009 Syrah, Bien Nacido Vineyard, “X-Block

“A classic Bien Nacido Syrah with its smoky dark fruit, mineral and pepper-driven bouquet, the 2009 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block (100% Syrah aged 20 months in French oak puncheons) is medium to full-bodied, beautifully fruited and has a focused, pure feel on the palate. Outstanding juice, it should drink nicely through 2019. Drink now-2019.” -Jeb Dunnuck, August 2013

2010 Syrah “Jespersen

“The most difficult wine of the latest BD offerings to rate, this superb wine is for those who understand the distinctive herbal nature of the grape, with its wild, rustic/earthy tones. Phenomenal balance, with tannin for aging, but it also has fascinating fruit and a soil note!” -Dan Berger’s Weekly Wine Commentary, September 5, 2013

2008 Syrah “Alamo Creek

“Opaque ruby. Dark berry preserves, olive and smoky Indian spices on the fragrant nose and in the mouth.  Displays very good depth and energy, with a late jolt of cracked pepper adding bite.  Dusty tannins give shape and grip to the long, smoke-accented finish.  I'd give this taut, structured wine at least a few years to unwind, or at least decant it for a couple of hours.”

2003 Le Cigare Volant

In 2003, the Cigare temporarily drifted away from its traditional reliance on grenache as a moral tether. Here syrah and mourvèdre are dominant, and the result is a dense vintage. One can hardly quarrel with the results.

2009 Ca' del Solo Nebbiolo

The ’09, our last Nebs (at least for the indeterminate future) is arguably the finest Nebbiolo we have ever produced. Incredibly bright in the nose (not always the first descriptor that comes to mind with Nebbiolo), the wine is just bursting with fruit.

2013 Cigare Alt. D

This is a version of a Cigare unsmoked, as it were, one in which leading and supporting roles are reversed and Syrah is the leading lady. I’ve always been quite hesitant about composing a blend where Syrah is the dominant element – Syrah, like any ham (or other smoked meat), tends to upstage the other actors. (It is the grape that’s always asking, “So, who’s your umami?)

2009 Le Cigare Volant Réserve (en bonbonne)

The ’09 Cigare Volant Réserve is, to my palate, the most elegant and complete Cigare we have produced to date; it is literally a dream, and dare I say, a very strange synthesis of the sensibilities of southern Rhône and Burgundy.
