2014 Bonny Doon A Proper Claret, 750ml

Availability: In stock (5)

A bold, big California red made with Bordeaux varietals by the eccentric Randall Grahm. A biodynamic winery in Santa Cruz, Bonny Doon has long been know for experimentation and for championing underappreciated grape varieties. To this end they've included a healthy amount of Tannat in this blend with Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Merlot, a reference to how it was once grown in Bordeaux and included in their blends.

From the mouth of the producer:

"Comparing this wine with the 2013 APC, the second vintage, the ’14 version is a bit plusher and posher, with softer tannins, not unreminiscent of the overstuffed chair at one’s Club. There is still a lovely minty, cedary aspect to this wine, reflective of its perfect balance, with nary a prunish note to be found."
