Founded in the bucolic hamlet of Bonny Doon in 1983 by Randall Grahm, Bonny Doon Vineyard (Santa Cruz, CA), is known for its strikingly original wines made from lesser-known grape varieties, chiefly those originating from the Rhône Valley in France. This wine is a blend of blend of 39% Mourvèdre, 33% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 2% Cinsault.
Winemaker’s Notes: “A beautiful wine-dark, mulberry color, and a first nose of dark, cool loamy earth with suggestions of raspberries, Damson plums and cherry/chocolate. On the palate, it is sleek and racy with a lively acidity, very soft tannins and great persistence.”
