2012 Le Cigare Volant Réserve “en bonbonne

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."

2010 Le Cigare Volant Réserve (en bonbonne) Image

92 POINTS, Wine Enthusiast: “Fresh-flowing blood, dried Italian herbs and cured cuts of meat greet the nose on this annual Bonny Doon treat, a blend of 28% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 17% Cinsault, 17% Mourvèdre and 16% Carignane. The flavors are dominated by purple fruits, trending toward blackberry and blueberry, with violet florals and rustic dust."

2014 Syrah, Bien Nacido Vineyard, “X-Block

We have been working with the Bien Nacido Vineyard for effectively twenty-five years – it has always been an important backbone of the Cigare – and with this vintage, I’m sorry to report, will be the final varietal Syrah that we are producing from this outstanding vineyard. Bittersweet this parting is, as the 2014 X-Block may be well be the very finest rendering of Syrah we’ve achieved since perhaps the original Bonny Doon Estate (in Bonny Doon).

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...” -Jeb Dunnuck, August 2013

2013 Syrah “Le Pousseur” Image

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

2017 Clos de Gilroy “Cuvée Particulière

For a long time I went to bed aïoli, clovèd in nothing but the barest essential oils. The Wine Formerly Known as Clos de Gilroy (TWFKaCdG) pays homage to the quaint, rustic town of Gilroy, the spiritual locus of all matters alliaceous. However, note well, the fruit for this wine does not, despite its name, derive from Gilroy, but instead from the vivaciously scented Alta Loma vineyard in the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County.
