Pepper dusted lilac candies - a wild nose

Lighter in body than one would expect with this CDP styled blend. Sour cherry, mint, flint, river stone, the fruit is exceptional, all ripe and ready to please in its own way. Blended, dark and bright, and luscious at the same time.
Randall Graham - it’s been awhile, still a great winemaker with a talent for fun.

Notes from last night so not as detailed. Ah Bonny Doon you always are as quirky as you are wonderful. The earthiness is there but balanced out. I could have waited a while on this one. Would buy again. (Also go and visit their tasting room. It's a ton of fun).

Thanks Lyn Evins. Delicious. Syr,gren,cins,mrvd,carig. 13.3alc. Most detailed back label I've seen mentioning ingredients which include oak chips and so2. Had a slight old world /earthy feel but still very fruit fwd.

great change for rhone lovers. nose not roasted as expected from a NW wine. just ripe fruits infused with typical rhone-like flowers too. smooth palate. not too much alcohol.
