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.

($14; a kitchen sink blend based on carignane) Bright ruby. Spicy red- and blackcurrant aromas, with notes of violet and black pepper adding complexity. Cassis and bitter cherry flavors pick up a smoky quality with air, along with a hint of herbs. This easy-drinking but somewhat hard-edged wine finishes with good clarity and cut.
