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!

Thank you for your review! Vin Gris is a classic, so food friendly, so quaffable, (too quaffable?) so versatile. The `14 vintage just became available: shop.bonnydoonvineyard.com/product/2014-Vin-Gris-de-Cigare. Cheers!

Spice, fresh herbs, not sure if this wine is oaked but there is vanilla and caramel notes full and rich on the palate Violet's tart black fruit with a very long finish! #bonnydoon — 4 years ago

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2014

Well done Cali Vin Gris. Nose of rose petals and watermelon, and a nice spine of acid. My biggest complaint is the heat that hits you at the end. Just a little too much alcohol. #vingris #centralcoast #bonnydoon #summer — 4 years ago

Hi Adam, I'm sorry we let you down with the alcohol percentage, although, 13% is pretty low in our book. We always aim to produce low alcohol, food friendly wines, so it is a concern for us. Thanks for your review, cheers to pink wine weather!
