Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant 2003
Rhone Red Blends
from Central Coast, California
A little bit of a stylistic departure for Bonny Doon. Since I have been hanging out with Patrick Ducournau, I have learned the mantra: "I will fear no tannin." Cigare has always been fruit-driven (in the Australian parlance) and usually has had the soft, plush texture of the upholstery one finds in a vintage Citroën. We have upped the ante and given the wine a little more grip, more conjones, if you will. I think that in doing so, we have enchanced this Cigares ability to age. Varietal composition: 34% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 27% Mourvédre, 2% Viognier, 2% Cinsault and 2% Carignane.
