Bonny Doon

A blend of grenache, syrah and mourvèdre with just a soupçon of cinsault, make for a bright and wonderfully gamey wine. Very youthful with toasty notes of cherry, birch, sassafras and pomegranate. Pair this racey red with a bloomsdale spinach salad with sherry vinaigrette garnished with carpaccio of tuna or beef. Speaking of beef, a rare steak in any number of variations (tri-tip, hanger, New York, filet) would be quite delish. But more exotic fare such as chicken tikka masala or Tandoori lamb chops will also work wonderfully well. While the zesty '07 is excellent right now, decanting or aging it for 2-3 more years would be all to the good.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 regular bottling, the Le Cigare Volant (Normale), is almost Burgundian in its floral, black cherry, plum, and foresty notes. The wine is round, medium-bodied, elegant, and should drink nicely for 4-6 years.

Score: 89. —Robert Parker, August 2010.
