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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
($15; 47% grenache, 27% cinsaut, 14% syrah, 7% grenache blanc and 5% roussanne) Vivid pink. Wild strawberry and raspberry on the nose, with subtle white flower and cracked pepper notes adding vivacity. Light in body but packs good flavor punch, offering deep red berry and cherry flavors along with anise and a late jolt of orange. Finishes clean and brisk, with good lift and persistence.
