2012 Le Cigare Volant Réserve “en bonbonne

92 Points Wine Enthusiast 

Anaerobically cellared, affiné or “perfected” in 20 liter glass demijohns on its lees, this wine represents the peak of elegance in the eclectic Bonny Doon Vineyard range.

#2, 50 Best Wines of 2016, VinePair - "Randall Grahm is a winemaker who continues to impress. His move to close all of his wines with screwcap might be seen by some people as cheapening the wines, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a serious, age-worthy red wine that showcases why Randall is one of this country’s best winemakers. A Rhone-style red blend, the wine is deep and dark with the Syrah playing the dominant role. Flavors of dark berries marry with leather to create a delicious 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

2010 Le Cigare Volant Réserve (en bonbonne)

The flavors are dominated by purple fruits, trending toward blackberry and blueberry, with violet florals and rustic dust."

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

2013 Syrah “Le Pousseur”

If the ’12 Pousseur bore an uncanny resemblance to Crozes-Hermitage, our ’13 Syrah definitely shades slightly in the direction of a St. Joseph.

2016 “Je N'egrette Rien

Negrette, aka Pinot St. George in Californa, is the rustic grape variety originating from the Côteaux Fronton in southwest France. The grape and resultant wine is preternaturally dark in color; it will stain your teeth, your glassware, perhaps even other aspects of your life. Do not say you weren’t warned.

2016 Clos de Gilroy

91 Points Wine Enthusiast 

Note well, the fruit for this wine does not, despite its name, derive from Gilroy, but instead primarily from the vivaciously scented Alta Loma vineyard in the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County, accompanied by equally expressive Grenache from Rancho Solo, located just outside the wind-swept, tumble-weeded town of Soledad.
