Bonny Doon

When the talk gets around to Rhône varieties in the New World, there are few people in California as important as Randall Graham and his Bonny Doon winery.  Ever the innovator, Graham has regained the focus that drove his early success with Bonny Doon and is once again producing compelling if occasionally off-beat wines.

Who could question his suggestion of Viognier Port for example. If that doesn’t rock your boat, there is always the classic Viognier, a lovely Grenache Blanc and of course Le Cigare Blanc. To me, the Le Cigare Volant, Randall’s ordinal take on the wines of the Southern Rhône, was a watershed moment in America’s pursuit of the Rhône varietals. The same could be said for this classic blend of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne which emulates a Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc right down to the wine’s quince and pollen characteristics.
