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."

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

2014 Syrah, “Cuvée Splendide

What we love most about Syrah is its exotic perfume and exquisite spice. As an accompaniment to food, especially of the gamey, rustic genre—think game birds, venison, etc.,—Syrah can regarded as a sort of universal solvent. We are unabashed lovers of the variety; long may it flourish. Vive la Syrah!

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.

2011 Sparkling Syrah

"It's my favorite Bonny Doon wine." - Randall Grahm

The wine is clearly a Syrah, but rendered in a way that is startlingly unexpected and just totally fun.

2014 Sparkling “Pinot Doonier

I love retro-styles, both in cars and in wine, and I think that there is a very interesting collision of the senses when one marries a proper, complex red wine with tiny bubbles (made à la champenoise).

2015 Cigare Alt. E

Ah, the route de vin not taken… Composing a Cigare blend (an annual occurrence) is a bit like solving a puzzle, but in fact there are an infinite number of potential solution sets. We don’t really aim for stylistic consistency in Cigare, but rather to produce the absolutely most complex, seductive, compelling wine we can. As a result, there are often some extremely interesting bits that just don’t get included.
