Le Cigare Volant 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

A little bit of a stylistic departure for Bonny Doon. Since I have been hanging out with Patrick Ducournau, I have learned the mantra: "I will fear no tannin." Cigare has always been fruit-driven (in the Australian parlance) and usually has had the soft, plush texture of the upholstery one finds in a vintage CitroÔn. We have upped the ante and given the wine a little more grip, more conjones, if you will. I think that in doing so, we have enchanced this Cigares ability to age. Varietal composition: 34% Grenache, 33% Syrah, 27% Mourv_dre, 2% Viognier, 2% Cinsault and 2% Carignane.

This lovely Southern Rh(ne style wine is fruit-forward and driven by elegance and a soft mouth feel. The bouquet shows ripe cherries with hints of strawberries, rose petal and violets. The flavors are cherry cola with elements of wild herbs and
