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 2012
(based on carignane from vines that are reportedly over a century old): Bright violet color. Jammy black and blue fruits on the nose and palate. Plump and intensely fruity, with smoke and peppery spice notes carrying through the sweet, clinging finish. No lack of fruit here.
