About Bonny Doon Vineyard
Iconoclast Randall Grahm made his name as one of the original Rhône Rangers in California. When he purchased land in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the early ‘80s his dream was actually to develop great American Pinot Noir. This feat temporarily eluded him, but what he developed was a knack for lesser-grown, Mediterranean varieties.

($30; for 375 ml.; made from botrytiz ed grapes) M edium orange- gold. Poached pear, apricot, orange marmalade and floral honey aromas display an exotic personality. Fat and unctuous, with deep pit fruit compote flavors complicated by subtle hints of toffeed nuts and pear skin. Finishes broad and sweet, with a refreshingly bitter peach pit bite, gentle mineral lift and impressive persistence. This would be fantastic with stinky, runny or blue cheeses.
