Bison rib eye, I'd love to try that. All 5 reviews were great.

@Dennis P. Thank you! The bison ribeye was delicious; juicy and tender. I’d definitely recommend it!

Le Cigare Blanc 2018

The 2018 Le Cigare Blanc was made from 54% Grenache Blanc grapes and 46% Vermentino from the Central Coast vineyards Cedar Lane, Paragon and Beeswax. I'll admit, I miss the Roussanne, which was jettisoned in favor of another grape. Fortunately, I love Vermentino, too, and it delivers enough salinity to be a worthy replacement. The nose threw me, because of its strong fruit’n’floral aromas. After a few minutes, the salinity came through and even more savory notes appeared on the nose. However, as with Le Cigare Volant, the Blanc is probably much more approachable in its new form. It doesn't mean I like it better. — 3 months ago

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2018

Hey, it’s Bonnie Doon Cigare, of course it’s great. But the red is better. This has a different aftertaste/flavor than a regular rose. Very nice. — a month ago
