Red Wines of the Earth

2009 Le Cigare Volant - normale

A worthy successor to the ’08, though perhaps slightly less muscular, but conversely, incrementally more elegant.

2009 Le Cigare Volant Réserve <em>(en bonbonne)</em>

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.

2010 Le Cigare Volant Réserve <em>(en bonbonne)</em>

September DEWN 2014 club release

This wine is all about elegance, and seems to disarmingly suggest a Burgundian take on Châteauneuf, if such a notion can be fashioned. This is not an ordinary wine.

2011 Old Telegram

This wine is a bruiser. There’s no other way to say it. We aim to produce wines of elegance and finesse, but sometimes Mother Nature just presents one with a Monster.

2009 Syrah “Bien Nacido,

“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.” - Josh Raynolds

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 Clos de Gilroy

Grenache’s exceptionally lovely strawberry-rhubarbarity is complemented by delicate notes of raspberry, kirsch, red currant, and white pepper. It’s the perfect foil for anything prepared al fresco, especially when anointed with olive oil.

2012 Syrah “Le Pousseur”

The ’12 Pousseur (who is to say why) is still in a Marlon Brando-like bit of a sullen funk, but there is no question that underneath that brooding exterior, there beats the heart of a Wild One.

2011 Zinfandel, Carignane, Grenache

This is really just an ultra-delicious, sappy excursion into the land of black raspberry and blackberry jam with maybe just maybe the vaguest suggestion of Damson plum.

2011 Tempranillo

Tempranillo is the diminutive form of temprano, or “early”, but there is nothing oily or early about this wine, which comes from the ultra cool wind tunnel that is the Ventana Vineyard in the blustery Salinas Valley.

2012 Contra

“In the Bonny Doon Contra, winemaker Randall Grahm has crafted a rustic 'old vine' field blend that reflects to a large extent the history of California wine. At the very least it recalls an era when vineyards weren’t so precise, a time when multiple grape varieties were planted on the same plot.” - Robert Whitley

2011 Syrah/Viognier “Black & White & Red All Over”

There is no question that Syrah and Viognier are true soul mates. Viognier adds an exotic fragrance to Syrah, helps to create a richer, softer mouthfeel and just makes for a more complete and satisfying taste experience.
