2010 Awesome nose, notes of black olive, tobacco, smoke. Fresh on the palate - dark with great acidity. Begs for food.

Enjoyed this in the tasting room and now. This wine has soft aromas and flavors and it paired nicely with our roasted chicken dinner.

V2006. Dirty, funky and if the fruit wasn't so ripe I'd think it was N Rhone. Showing beautifully.

2011. The nose is full of red berries, with a dark flair. Raspberry, cherry, and red currant are met with Grahm’s signature savoriness of roasted meat, beef jerky and black olive tapenade. The sip reveals that the ‘11 Cigare is a festival of darkness. The savory aspects come forward in a rush. The forest floor, the olive, the spice - all are cloaked in a dark fruit setting. Black plums, currant and berries work hard to mesh with the wine's earthy character. The acidity is remarkable and the tannic structure is firm.
