Le Cigare Volant, Bonny Doon Vineyards
Grenache adds rich black fruit flavors and a discreet spiciness. Syrah is principally sourced from Bien Nacido vineyard in Santa Maria Valley – tannic and meaty in the lower registers, peppery, fruitful and delicately floral in the top, all while showing great balance and harmony. A select group of non-irrigated, centenarian Contra Costa vineyards continues to provide Mourvedre for Cigare. A touch of Cinsault provides a very particular fragrance of flowers and aromatic herbs.
