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."

At the risk of sounding redoondant, this is one of the greatest Bien Nacido Syrahs in memory.

We love the Syrah fruit that comes from the X-Block. We have a lot of history with this block.

There is something special about bordelais grapes grown in the Santa Cruz Mts.  This wine in fact is a bit of a time-machine, harkening to an earlier, less self-conscious era of the wine industry in California, when winemakers made wines to please themselves, rather than trying to make wines that they reckoned would be commercially acceptable or sexy.   (Does this oak treatment make my butt look pHat?)   Organically farmed, dry-farmed vines from high in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the hippie trippy Zayante area.  (Growing grapes there is real no picnic with the intense avian and deer pressure.  The degree of bird pressure is often a salient consideration in when grapes in the Santa Cruz Mountains are harvested.)
