Bonny Doon Vineyard

Le Cigare Volant Red Rhone Blend 2018

Really nice blend of Grenache, Syrah & Cinsault! Picking up red cherries, raspberries, cranberries and a mild oak treatment, baking spices mild tobacco and earth!, Tannins are mild with a medium body. I would classify this as Old World; gorgeous flavors yet not in your face! — a month ago

McHenry Vineyard

Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

My first time trying the 2017 Estate, the latest release from this tiny yet remarkable producer way up on Bonny Doon Road. The wines from McHenry vineyard typically show their best with 5-10 years of age but I love to try them in their youth, you know...for science. I opened this bottle about three hours before dinner and allowed it to slow-ox in the cellar. At first, the aromas were predominately red fruited in profile; strawberries and spices…almost like a Christmas fruitcake. However, the profile evolved in the glass and with more air, this began to take on a darker fruit profile that I find to be more characteristic of McHenry’s wines. This is a beautifully perfumed wine. On the palate, this is very bright and full of precocious energy. Plums and red berries with baking spices and minerals. Tannins are medium at best but there is no shortage of acid, which is a hallmark for this estate, ensuring that the 2017’s will in all likelihood enjoy a long life. Excellent now and likely to be a stunner down the road. Only 100 cases were made. — 23 days ago

Thanks, Semillon 2016

This is much better on night 2. It is a style that is mid-way between purposefully underripe Aussie Semillon and riper, waxy, honeyed interpretations. Nose has tart kumquat in tandem with a Semillon waxy, lanolin thing, but toned down. In the mouth, it juxtaposes the dark, low toned character of Semillon with good acids and freshness. Very nice. — a month ago
